Today we are pleased to join forces with Slye for the premiere of his new music video for “Into Colour,” a bombastic indie-funk explosion fuelled with intricate guitar riffs, swirling vocals and pop melodies to create a funk classic with a modern twist. Into colour combines the infectious grooves of late 70s- early 80s funk music such as Prince, and Funkadelic with the introspective lyricism and melodies of modern indie, contemporary R&B and Alt rock. By uniting these separate worlds of music the song breaks down traditional genres and creates art that is original and unique whilst paying respect to the greats which have inspired the sound.
The tight verses and lush choruses showcase Slye’s lyrics which explore ideas of self-knowledge and understanding. Lyrics and melody combined, ‘Into Colour’ pushes the conventional boundaries of pop and offers an exciting sound that adds a pop of colour into the musical landscape. Into colour explores the journey that we make through a world of monochrome where we must embrace joy and pain in order to grow and embody the rich palette of colours that life has to offer us.
None of this captures it best than today’s premiere for his haunting visuals that beautifully captures an entire era through the use of footages with what could be described as subliminal flower imagery.
