The Gorgeous Colours - 'It's OK To Be Normal'
Have been meaning to post about this for a while - the song was released back in May, but this video is relatively new. The Gorgeous Colours occupy a unique position on the domestic scene - they make pop music with hooks aplenty, but it doesn't really fit in with the lo-fi, charmingly ramshackle efforts of the Popical Island gang. The Gorgeous Colours are more reminiscent of bands like Grizzly Bear or Super Furry Animals, making lush, deceptive, intricately melodic tunes. This may well be their finest so far.
It's Ok To Be Normal by The Gorgeous Colours
The band will be kicking off Friday's Body & Soul Main Stage action at Electric Picnic, and I intend to catch their set.
Another thing I meant to post about before - their full-length self-titled album is available as a free download from their Bandcamp, where you
can also find last year's The Creatures Down Below EP.
