colouring in is a new london-based band formed by love minus zero label owner and house producer tom neville and opera singer henry bennett. and before you're all like 'yeah just like hercules and love affair', let me tell you that the colouring in sound is much more dancefloor-oriented, catchy and synth-laden - 'future-romantic pop music' as they call it, 'always with a raucously infectious beat'.
i've picked up a demo of their track 'intergalactic romantic' from the exquisite dalston oxfam shop this morning and while i have tons of other posts on my to-do-list, this had to go up right away. much love to my favorite london girl in berlin for the recommendation.
colouring in - intergalactic romantic (demo radio edit)
an ep is set for release in 2009 and obviously a couple of labels are already on it, so you a&r's and label owners reading this, bust out the cheque book and get ready for a hard fight, as these guys will definitely blow up!
i am hoping to see colouring in live some time this year, as they play a great show with five people on stage playing live electronic drums, four synthesizers, a cello and a trumpet. can't wait!
