Not being overly into shoegaze but by no means being a stranger to it either, I was automatically entranced by the heavy wall of sound UK five piece, Colour Of Spring have produced on their new single Echoes. Hailing from Leeds, the quintet have established a strong reputation as a live act and are steadily growing in popularity online; sporadically popping up on up and coming playlists that extend far beyond their home country.
With a spacey ominous introduction, Echoes slowly transforms into a solemn downtempo track that details the struggles associated with coming of age. While today’s Juice does not necessarily have any standout moments musically, Echoes maintains a smooth momentum fuelled by a relaxing, heavily distorted guitar hook and a rattling drum beat. What first drew me to Colour Of Spring was the subtleties they share with fellow shogazers Slowdive. Looking forward to see what 2017 holds for these dudes.
