Introducing Significant Other: a new series for 2018

Significant other blog image Barely Regal turns seven years old this month, and to celebrate we're dead excited to finally announce a project we've been working on for a good while now.

'Significant Other' is our first ever singles series, bringing together two of our main passions - music and comics. Over the course of the series, we'll be pairing musicians and illustrators, the latter creating a comic in response to a track.

Each month, we'll be releasing a new single by a different band or artist, along with the accompanying comic (a different pairing of musician and illustrator each time), available as a pay-what-you-what digital download. Maybe we'll do some kind of fun physical product at the end, and there'll possibly a few surprises along the way - we'll see.

The first single in the series is one that's especially close to our hearts - a new track from Parisian post-hardcore trio Bitpart, who we've wanted to work with for a very long time. The accompanying comic is by David Brohet, one of my favourite current illustrators. Listen to the track and read the comic below, and you can download both here.
