The Colourist - Little Games

Sounds Like: Wild Cub, HAERTS, Two Door Cinema Club

I don't mean to sound like somebody's disgruntled grandfather, but music can and has been convoluted as of recent. With so much cross-genre borrowing and influence, it's getting easier and easier to wonder and conclude to yourself, "What was I just listening to? No idea". Not to say that this isn't a fascinating trend in the overall pursuit of artistic originality in modern music, but it can get a little confusing. In the same breath, sometimes pop is just pop. I think The Colourist has really keyed on that concept with their latest release "Litte Games". The tight laced guitars and upbeat rhythms are a perfect fit for the season and say "Yeah, this is pop music. Dig it.". Well, to me at least.
