The ShortListen: COLOUR (no. 301)

Who? COLOUR

What’s the story? We featured the Northwest quartet COLOUR back in November and now they're back with the lead song, Fiction, from their self-produced debut EP, KAFÉ. It's a blistering track which builds on the promise we spotted before, leaping out of the traps from the off with some Foals-esque guitar, winding arpeggiators and frenetic drums. The pace doesn't let up, before it goes into an almost Peter Gabriel-on-steroids chorus with the intriguing lyric: "she don't talk to me any more than she talks to God". Keep an eye on these guys, they could be set for big things.

For fans of: Foals, Two Door Cinema Club

In three words: Frenetic rhythmic indie
