NEW ALBUM MAY YOU MARRY RICH OUT NOW ON MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES
Colourmusic have shared a James Bond-style video for ‘Horse Race’, the lead track from their new album May You Marry Rich. The theme of the video perfectly compliments the cinematic scope of Colourmusic’s new material, which is available now via Memphis Industries.
Formed in Oklahoma in 2005 by Yorkshireman Nick Turner and Okie native Ryan Hendrix, some years after bonding over Aphex Twin during their University days together, Colourmusic has now settled on in line up that includes bassist Colin Fleishacker and drummer Nicholas Ley.
With two previous albums under their belts, F, Monday, Orange, February, Venus, Lunatic, 1 or 13 and My ____ Is Pink, the group have gained a justified reputation for marrying hallucinatory textures and experimental rock tropes with an off-kilter take on the world, exploring anything from writing songs based on Newton’s theory of colour to songs written at the tempo people have sex.
‘Horse Race’ is one of many highlights from the new album, a lurching, behemoth groove that asks the question we all need an answer to: “do we need Wal-Marts in Heaven?”
