Crooked Colours release entrancing new single ‘Love Language’
Indie-dance trio Crooked Colours have released their first track for 2020 ‘Love Language’. The new single echoes that classic Crooked Colours sound pairing hypnotic electronica beats with soulful vocals and tranquil melodies. This tropical summer banger has us all ready for warm balmy nights ahead.
“This song is about the different ways in which we communicate our love for each other,“ says vocalist-guitarist Philip Slabber about the new song. “How special it is to find someone that speaks the same love language as you. It’s a celebration of the uniqueness of relationships.”
Leon Debaughn on keys added, “I think it’s important to release a song like this right now. There’s a lot of hate and shit going on the world. There should be some more love.”
Accompanying the release, Crooked Colours have also shared an atmospheric music video that features ambient neon lighting, a performance from the band and beautifully mesmeric underwater scenes.
This addictive new track is slower and more emotive than the band’s previous releases with rich electronic sounds that instantly elate and entrance the listener. ‘Love Language’ is the band’s latest release following the success of their 2019 sophomore LP, Langata, which hit #1 on the Dance Album Charts, and top 10 on the ARIA Album Charts.
This September the band have their biggest national tour to look forward to with the band performing at the Hordern Pavillion in Sydney, Festival Hall in Melbourne, Centenary Warehouse in Perth, and Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane. It is unclear whether the show will go ahead with COVID restrictions in place. COVID didn’t stop Crooked Colours from playing at WA Unlocked in Perth where all restrictions have essentially been lifted. The event took place in Perth’s HBF Stadium in July with the band performing alongside other WA locals Slumberjack, ShockOne, and Tina One.
Crooked Colours‘ new song ‘Love Language’ is an undeniable banger made to get us through to better days. Melding atmospheric sounds of electronica and dance, this three-piece band keep raising the bar releasing mesmerising music that never disappoints.
