Straight Outta Leeds
MJ out of Hookworms is everywhere. He’s recorded Joanna Gruesome, Pulled Apart By Horses, Drenge, Mazes and in Colour of Spring here is yet another band he has taken under his wing. He’s quickly becoming the Steve Albini of the burgeoning British lo-fi movement. Colour of Spring are Leeds based shoegazers and they definitely benefit from MJ’s loose approach. It lends their music a more rugged outer shell, without shedding any of the melodic wonder of their previous releases. ‘Honey’ is a mid tempo bass heavy wade through gloopy guitar, and washed out vocals. ‘Skin’ takes a dreamier approach, combining ethereal guitars to more focused rhythm work.
This AA single is the band’s debut release, and is out on 2nd February via Plastic Fish Records.
