Single Review... Films Of Colour - Capital/Persinette

Films Of Colour are back, and not only that, they are back with a racey, pulsating, and lip smacking single! Releasing their d├ębut single Actions through tastemaker label Fandango/Fierce Panda, Films of Colour were described by head honcho Simon Williams as the best band he’s signed since Radiohead and Coldplay. Films of Colour are: Andy Clutterbuck (vocals), James Hatcher (guitar), Jack Allinson (bass/synths) and James Rees-Flynn (drums)

Capital:
‘Capital is about your everyday, a comment on the back and forth of metropolitan living and how we come out the better for it’ – Andy Clutterbuck (Vocals). It is a racey track and it feels like you are on a roller-coaster, the blips and beeps at the beginning is the tow up the hill, the drumming is the peak and the guitar is the race down the slope and the loops! They seriously have some talent and it shows right through on this track, the guitar hooks on this track are just mesmerising and it makes me reminisce of a band called Bloc Party, these guys are hot on their Dance-Rock heels!

Persinette:
Starts of as a dark track, with fast drums and bass with almost horror-esque guitar effects. Then you are lulled into thinking that's the setting for the track, nope... It then gains pace and hit you when you are not expecting it, it drops before that happens then you get welcomed with a growing pulsating riff and high bass notes. It then explodes into an orgy of noise, then it suddenly stops. This track is too good to be a B-Side... seriously, I love it!
