FLYYING COLOURS – ” Running Late “

I find Australian shoegaze quartet Flyying Colours’ name a bit maddening the spelling makes it hard to find the band on the net , but their music would be more than enough to soothe any irritation, a heady balm of smeared guitar textures and sharp pop sensibilities. After the minor classic  Not Today,” “Running Late” is the second single from their upcoming ROYGBIV EP. Brodie Brümmer and Gemma O’Connor’s dreamily deadpan male/female vocals melt together perfectly like some sort of musical Voltron before separating in the chorus, where O’Connor’s breathy coos swirl into an angelic echo overhead. At three and a half minutes, “Running Late” is fairly trim for a song about being fundamentally incompatible with the inexorable forward march of time, but those three and a half minutes proceed at their own leisurely pace. Flyying Colours are taking the time to stop and smell the flowers — or the effects pedals? — and you should probably take the time to stop and listen the band are about to tour the UK.
