COLOUR

This is what COLOUR say about themselves:

We are a new Art Rock band, our members literally residing in Liverpool, Stoke and Rutland. We create our own music, content and art from our studio on the Northwest Coast. We’ve just released our debut EP. BBC Introducing ‘New Band of the Year 2014’ from Stoke.

  • Born on 1 January 2013
  • Band Members
    Tidd, Scott, Downey, Connor
    The overwhelming word that comes to mind when listening to COLOUR is “Refreshing”.In this age of Taylor Swift and conveyor belt pop, it is so refreshing to hear a young band actually working on instrumentation, arrangements and songwriting. On STRANGERS interplay between the 2 guitars, bass and drums is breath-taking then the excellent vocals kick in to top off a brilliant song. I hate looking for influences but Simple Minds and U2 come to mind, surely no bad thing. A very commercial track which deserves success.

    More Beautiful cascading guitars open RED  then powers into another commercial masterpiece featuring some gorgeous bass lines and another impassioned vocal. Jeez these guys can play !!!!!! I can see them onstage now at Glastonbury !!!!
    Slower, moodier guitar intro on this track: the production is stunning on all these songs, no more so on SHATTERED
    Another ridiculously catchy chorus and by now COLOUR are really impressing with their consistently great songwriting.
    It has been said by many recently that rock music is dead !! Well, on the evidence of COLOUR I think our musical heritage is in very safe hands.If they arent massive in a year or two I’ll eat my hat !!!
    YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST !!!!
