Melbourne shoe-gaze/ psych rockers Flyying Colours have just set off on a UK and European tour this May to tour in support of the forthcoming EP ROYGBIV. available on AC30 Records of which they will have on tour with them for sale

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. Before they left, the band released the impressive shoegaze dream of a track called ‘Running Time’ and now with the help of directed By Thomas Russell they’ve produced the stunning video accompaniment.


The wonderful sound of guitars from Australian band FLYYING COLOURS and their first EP,  please check them out on bandcamp and, 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.”



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.
