8/10 Mike Staff review, 20 March 2014
One of the things on my review pile this week is an album by Colourmusic, who I haven't heard before. Nor is there any information in the press release so I'm just going to dive into this one blind. It's quite an interesting record actually, a kind of dreamy '80s-style pop but with some droney experimental leanings and breathy reverbed vocals.   The bass is quite chorussy and the guitar lines are quite spidery and in places it's got a kind of post-punk feel like early Cure, but the synths and lengthy trails of vocal reverb fill out any empty space. In 'Audacity of Hope' they manage to conjure up an almost industrial-sounding whirlwind of guitar distortion and clattering drums. 'Overture' which follows it goes a little too far into epic pop territory for my liking though, a kind of Thompson Twins via Rammstein thumpy shouty anthem.   Even at their most trite, though, the chunky, thick sound and the wispy vocals are an appealing combination and there's always something slightly weird and chaotic going on, their drummer seems to be their secret weapon with some clever grooves which in their best moments are Liebezeitesque in their sideways simplicity. I'm kind of on the fence after a first listen, some of the more strident '80s pop aspects are making me cringe a little but then the drummer will come up with a cheeky little groove or they'll do something obnoxiously weird and I'm back on board.
