Those who love walls of noise should pay attention to Melbourne band Flyying Colours. This dream pop / shoegaze band writes their songs in a catchier and heavier way than many of their peers within the genre do.
Fragile melodies are combined with the typical shoegaze sound that was pioneered by bands like Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub and Dinosaur Jr. The band has both a front man and a front woman on vocal duties. Just listen to a song like ‘1987’, a song that has a very tasty groove. The band previously toured with bands like The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, and A Place To Bury Strangers.
Their new album “Fantasy Country” is coming out in the spring and the single ‘Goodtimes’ is a very promising teaser.
“A heady balm of smeared guitar textures and sharp pop” – Stereogum
“The type of gut-punch shoegaze that’s bound to appeal to many” – The Line of Best Fit
“Sparse and ethereal in sound but with a harsh, cutting edge reminiscent of Seattle’s finest from the late eighties/early nineties” – Drowned in Sound
