Films Of Colour - Capital
Films Of Colour piqued my interest a while ago, debut single Actions driving up a real buzz across the radio-scape, with even the esteemed Steve Lamacq singing the band's praises.
Determined to justify the buzz, follow up track Capital is the definition of a 'stormer' if ever there was one. Bleepy video-game synths play into riotious, sprawling guitar lines remiscent of Muse. Capital is all about the scope and scale, the sheer imensity of sound being crammed into its four minute duration.
It's the kind of track you can already envision as a firm live favourite - fitting then that it's already positioned as the band's gig opener. Chaneling a dark intensity that the likes of Editors have done so well in the past, Capital makes for a powerful, pacy introduction to new converts to the band's cause.
Capital is released on the 25th July.
