Australian three-piece Crooked Colours, aka Philip, Leon and Liam, originally started life as house party DJs, but as a fully-fledged band they're finding themselves playing on a much, much larger scale. After an 18-month hiatus, the trio are back with their keenly-anticipated album to satisfy their fans' interest that was piqued with a string of well-received singles on Sweat It Out! Music.
The first track to be heard from that new album (as yet untitled, but due this summer) is "Flow", a subtly infectious song characterised by minimalist arrangements and a clever use of space. At least that's the impression you get from the first minute or so of "Flow". You'd be forgiven for thinking the track was a downtempo one, sombre even. The track's second half, however, puts the track into a new perspective with colourful tones, a punchy drum beat, layered textures and an uplifting vibe that should give a first-time listener the perfect taste of what the band is capable of.
"Flow" is out now on Sweat It Out! Music.
