SOTD 8: Colour - Run Like You're Being Chased (2009)

Today's post is tinged with sadness as Colour, in my opinion one of the best young bands in the country, have recently announced they are to split. Luckily I got a chance to see them last night in Nottingham at the Social and they didn't show any signs of strain, putting on a great show for the lively crowd.

The highlight of the set for me was "Run Like You're Being Chased", the b-side to their last single, "Unicorns". The song itself is a typically energetic effort from the Kingston four-piece, combining lots from their seemingly large bag of tricks. My highlight is the bridge which uses a super-melodic bass riff with broken drumming and minimal guitar to create a sweet groove.

The band show a great deal of imagination and talent for writing original material, especially when compared with many of the new bands springing up around the country. They combine sweet harmonies, mathematical guitar work & intricate rhythms to craft songs that are never short of energy or hooks. The easiest comparisons would be to bands like Minus The Bear but to simply see them as a copy-cat act isn't doing the band justice at all. To see them live you wouldn't realise the shortness of their career, they really are very tight, especially considering the intricate nature of their songs.

Hopefully they will now move on to applying their obvious talent in further musical projects and I wish them every bit of luck in doing so. For now, I'm enjoying songs like this and appreciating my chance to have been part of the wave for a little bit. Enjoy!
