We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Flyying Colours’ debut album Mindfullness (listen below), being released through Club AC30 Records.

Residing in a dream-world that sits somewhere between psych, indie, grunge and shoegaze, the Australian band’s beautifully dynamic new offering showcases their talent for uniting a delicate vocal melody with a satisfying thick wall of abrasive drums and guitars.

Leading track and first single “It’s Tomorrow Now” further stirs the melting pot. Opening with a chaotic looped squeal, the knockout punch of the frenzied opening riff and steady, driving drums sets the bar high for the nine tracks that are to follow.

“Long Holiday” echoes the sun-tinged indie of the ‘90s, layered with ethereal harmonies and languid, hazy guitars, whilst the phenomenal “1987” is punchy and playful; reminiscent of the intelligent garage-indie of Broken Social Scene. Fuzzy psychedelic track “Mellow” is reverb-drenched, punctuated by distant vocals and dense sonic guitars. The post-rock drone of “Roygbiv” follows, and “Sun Hail and Rain”‘s continuous percussive drive and grooving bassline allows the perfectly aligned male/female vocals to shimmer. Title track “Mindfullness” employs a post-punk sway, buzzing with distorted guitars and power chords.

After two critically acclaimed EPs, Flyying Colours are set to release their debut album ‘Mindfullness’ in September on Club AC30.

Formed in 2011 in Brunswick by school friends Brodie and Gemma, they played every show they could week in, week out in Melbourne’s bustling inner north to finesse their sound. Debut single Wavygravy (2013) perfectly set the scene by truly capturing the unhinged essence of a Flyying Colours show. But the recent addition of the impressive abilities of Andy on drums and Mel on bass have taken that unhingedness to undreamt-of-levels, making the beautiful trip of their live show, something to truly marvel.

The Melbourne quartet have since spent the last year touring with label mates pinkshinyultrablast as well as Johnny Marr, Brian Jonestown Massacre and A Place To Bury Strangers, whilst singles Not Today and Running Late taken from their second EP, ‘ROYGBIV’ garnered heavy rotation on enormous radio stations worldwide,

The wonderful sound of guitars from Australian band FLYYING COLOURS and their first EP,  please check them out on bandcamp and http://www.flyyingcolours.com, the band’s guitarist Brodie J Brümmer has said before they slay the UK.

Their music  inspired by so much, everything really. It’s pretty obviously 90s shoegaze, psych and grunge stuff, pop music…we listen to everything. For me Nirvana, Sonic Youth and MBV really taught me how I wanted to play guitar.”

We were ready to tour UK/Europe with our new release so it was perfect timing. Our tour schedule is pretty full on, we have 10 UK shows in 12 days once we arrive – so [all they have planned] probably playing a lot of music.”

We are playing a heap of shows with our club ac30 label mates Pinkshinyultrablast who I’m super excited to see. Also No Joy and Cheatahs are playing a show together at the same venue the night after we play in London so we will definitely see that. Oh and the Primavera Festival lineup is pretty excellent. And of co

urse we get to see RIDE!”

check out other Australan bands like the obviously Hollow Everdaze, Hideous Towns and VHS Dream who we are playing our last Australian show with. The Melbourne psych/shoegaze scene is killer.”

 

Shoe-gaze/ psych rockers Flyying Colours are getting set to jet off to the UK and Europe this May to tour in support of the forthcoming EP “ROYGBIV”. While there the band will be performing as part of Great Escape and Primavera Sound Festivals, and supporting their Russian label mates Pinkshinyultrablast, as well as doing their own headline launch shows across Europe.

For those uninitiated, the Melbourne four piece have received their fair share of acclaim in the past few months, including respected UK music loggers and magazines the band’s new single ‘Running Late’ a “gorgeous piece of music”.  The single was the first taste from their EP titled ROYGBIV, which will have a worldwide release with the band recently signing to Club ac30 in the UK/Europe, Shelflife in the US and Vinyl Junkie in Japan.

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.

Shelflife Records presents the release of the Melbourne shoegaze/psych outfit Flyying Colours this track “Not Today” remix taken from the self-titled 5-track EP
True to their name, Flyying Colours unashamedly display their influences in this debut: tone bending MBV/Swervedriver guitars, Ride’s bass hooks and the familiar soft hush of early 90s male/female vocals. Add to that their own edgy, refreshing pop-mindedness and it makes for five completely brilliant tracks.

The EP includes pile-driving single “Wavygravy”, a layered noise anthem jumped on by national radio and the international shoegaze blogosphere on its Oz release last April. Other stand out tracks are psych-rock opener “Like You Said”, “Feathers” with its chorus-y jangle and lush vocals and the cool-down of closing track “Bugs.”

Formed in 2011, Flyying Colours is Brodie J Brümmer (vox/Guitar), Gemma O’Connor (vox/Guitar) and the drums & bass of brothers Sam and Joshua Dawes. Before “Wavygravy” they received a lot of attention for their explosive live shows, setting them well apart from others occupying Melbourne’s growing 90s/shoegaze scene. Flyying Colours have just completed an Australian tour and are currently recording tracks for their debut album.
