Flyying Colours announce tour and full-length debut

BrodieGtrAfter two critically acclaimed EPs, Flyying Colours are set to release their debut album ‘Mindfullness’ in September on Club AC30. Residing in a dream-world that sits somewhere between psych, indie, grunge and shoegaze, the Australian band’s beautifully dynamic new offering showcases their talent for uniting a delicate vocal melody with a satisfying thick wall of abrasive drums and guitars.

Leading track and first single It’s Tomorrow Now further stirs the melting pot. Opening with a chaotic looped squeal, the knockout punch of the frenzied opening riff and steady, driving drums sets the bar high for the nine tracks that are to follow.

Long Holiday echoes the sun-tinged indie of the ‘90s, layered with ethereal harmonies and languid, hazy guitars, whilst the phenomenal 1987 is punchy and playful; reminiscent of the intelligent garage-indie of Broken Social Scene. Fuzzy psychedelic track Mellow is reverb-drenched, punctuated by distant vocals and dense sonic guitars. The post-rock drone of Roygbiv follows, and Sun Hail and Rain’s continuous percussive drive and grooving bassline allows the perfectly aligned male/female vocals to shimmer. Title track Mindfullness employs a post-punk sway, buzzing with distorted guitars and power chords.

The Melbourne quartet have since spent the last year touring with label mates pinkshinyultrablast as well as Johnny Marr, Brian Jonestown Massacre and A Place To Bury Strangers, whilst singles Not Today and Running Late taken from their second EP, ‘ROYGBIV’ garnered heavy rotation on enormous radio stations worldwide, including KEXP, BBC6, JJJ, RRR and FBi. They hit #47 on the CMJ Radio top 200 in the states, sat in the UK’s Amazing Radio charts for weeks, and were championed by Clash, 405, Stereogum, Wonderland and NME. With the September release of ‘Mindfullness’, 2016 seems set to be just as busy.
