“Slow,” the new single from Florida-based duo Colours, is premiering via Cool Hunting at http://coolhunting.com/culture/premiere-slow-colours-band in anticipation of their debut album, Ivory, out February 26 on Victory Records. Hailed by Entertainment Weekly for their “howling electro-R&B beats,” the groupis set to tour with electronic artist Robert DeLong beginning this weekend. The dates will give fans their first chance to hear live performances of the tracks from the forthcoming album. Please see below for a complete list of shows.
“Having only two members offers us a unique and advantageous opportunity when we are creating,” divulges Tamo. Formed in 2013, the band started off by releasing a series of music videos while working on inspiring ideas for the set for their live performances. The duo wrote the songs for their new album over a 14-month period and started experimenting with new music around August 2013. The recording took just six weeks at Lopez’s studio in Burbank. Of working with Lopez, Alley said, “Shaun has a great ear for tone. He was able to listen to the songs we created, understand the direction and breathe new life into them. In discussing the album’s lyrics Tamo explains, “We write with someone else’s feelings in mind. There is a purposeful vagueness to most of my lyrics, preserving the attractiveness of personal interpretation.”
