Flyying Colours make sun drenched shoegaze that will appeal to folks that find the first Pains of Being Pure at Heart record just a little too edgy. This is easy-gaze, soft-shoe, the scene that celebrated its niceness. And there's nothing wrong with that as such other than in my day the best shoe-gaze was just that little bit scary.
They are at their best on opener 'I Don't Want To Let You Down' with its shards of guitars and obvious-as-a-kick-in-the-face chorus. When My Bloody Valentine released 'MBV' it was noticeable that the difference between the godparents of the scene and all the young pretenders was that you are never really sure where MBV tunes were about to go. Here it's easy to guess. That's not to say that this isn't worthy - it just plays it safe that's all.
On 'Running Late' they sound more like the sunshiney indie pop of fellow Aussies such as Even As We Speak whilst 'Not Today' picks up the pace a bit with some ethereal vocals particularly effective. I hear from our shoegaze expert Ian that they are much more entertaining live than on record and pump this and closer the shuffly 'Leaks' up loud and you can maybe see why.
Flyying Colours paint linear patterns with old shoegaze tools. I've yet to find the nu-gaze band that appeals to my sense of mischief but Flyying Colours drift along nicely for those moments when you don't want to think too hard.
