There are a handful of artists who, when they speak, sing or cry, we listen. Bob Moses, Elderbrook, RÜFÜS DU SOL, WhoMadeWho; these acts and the stories they tell are the closest things electronic music has to folklore, their compelling croons famous to the point of instant recognition.
With their new album, Tomorrows, Crooked Colours have joined this elite cohort of melody-makers. It's been a long road to get to the release of this "COVID album"; you might recognize 2020's "Love Language," the first track to mark the project's three-year rollout. Slow-burning and sun-drenched, it was an instant hit.
Overall, Tomorrows tells a sweeping tale of resilience, recognition and self-discovery across 13 tracks of house-infused indie pop. There's love and longing on "Homecoming," dark determination on "Fight Night," and realization and reflection on the titular "Tomorrows." Silky smooth vocals become hypnotic amongst the engrained euphoria of melodic undertones, like sweeping synths and lush pads.
These songs have a depth you can feel in your bones. Take a listen below.
