The confusingly-spelt Flyying Colours (its possibly to differentiate them from the psych-pop group Flying Colour - Clint)are a new band from Down Under who appear to have grown up exclusively on early '90s shoegaze from this side of the world. To be fair to them, though, they've totally nailed it, from the Ride-meets-Slowdive nonchalant fuzz'n'chime groove of opener 'Like You Said', followed by the My Bloody Valentine-pastiche guitar wibble of 'Wavygravy', it's clear that we're in for a nostalgic ride.
As I say, though, these Antipodean upstarts are good at shoegaze, the guitars are sprawled out in layers of crunchy fuzz and chimey bits full of chorus and reverb, the bass player keeps things busy and repetitive and the drumming is warm and bouncy. The singer's breathy mumble reminds me a little bit of Ian Brown and things do head in more of a Stone Roses direction on 'Feathers' but I think I prefer it when they keep the fuzz levels high.
I think the obvious comparison among their contemporaries has to be Ringo Deathstarr; it's shoegaze worship so precisely realised that it almost seems prematurely dated, but those of you who loved shoegaze the first time round and want some more records that sound like that will be totally into it.
