The Gorgeous Colours - 'The Creatures Down Below'
Take from their upcoming EP of the same name, 'The Creatures Down Below' is a deceptive little number with all manner of off-kilter harmonies, hooks and backing vocals that play off each other: it's intricate, absorbing stuff and never stays in one place for too long.

With the EP being self-funded, the Dublin-based band have set up a page where fans can pre-order it, with a number of additional incentives for those who are feeling particuarly generous (t-shirt offers, tickets to a secret gig, high-quality prints of TGC artwork, even a chance to take on the band in a 5-a-side game). Here's the 'EP Pledge' page: http://www.thegorgeouscolours.com/
It's been met with a great reaction so far, with one dedicated fan even set to fly all the way from Barcelona to appear onstage with the band at Whelan's (the EP launch, which will take place on 14th October). A band that inspires that kind of fandom is worth checking out!
The Gorgeous Colours are also taking part in this year's Hard Working Class Heroes festival, as well as supporting O Emperor on a couple of upcoming dates
