After receiving massive attention from the press, including being named in the Guardian as the ‘New Band of the Day’, being featured in ‘Record of the Day’ and in The Barometer in The Independent – plus a number of other radio and live/TV highlights, Films of Colour put on an exceptional show last night (1st October 2010), hosted by The Playground down at 93 Feet East in Brick Lane.
As the band featuring Andy Clutterbuck (vocals/guitar), James Hatcher (guitar), Jack Allinson (bass/synths), and James Rees (drums) were setting up, the population in the room rapidly increased, all eagerly awaiting the band to perform their brilliant and epic-sounding numbers. There was an electric vibe in the room as the Guildford 4-piece put on an incredible performance; they greatly connected with the crowd to the point that they had them singing along to their new single ‘Actions’ (which you can watch a video of below). Their performance of this track was total quality and extremely engaging – their delivery was impressive and you could easily get lost in the sounds of the melodious synths, whipping guitars and the vigorous attack of the drums, including the heartfelt lyrics which all complement the sensitive and emotionally prominent vocals.
Films of Colour are truly magnificent live and have huge potential to go a very long way in their music career. The band releases their single ‘Actions’ digitally on the 4th October (11TH October 7’’ vinyl) via Label Fandango Records. Although they are often compared with the likes of Delphic and Coldplay, I believe they are the next big thing to enter the indie music scene and mark their own individual stamp on it.
Films of Colour – ‘Actions’
Their upcoming shows include: The Vaults, Derby on October 7, Gatecrasher, Nottingham on October 8, Catch Bar, Shoreditch on October 12, and Moho In The City, Manchester on October 13.
