Colourmusic formed in Oklahoma in 2005 with Ryan Hendrix and UK-born Nick Turner, some years after bonding over a shared appreciation of Aphex Twin during their University days together. The band then expanded to include bassist Colin Fleishacker and drummer Nicholas Ley.
The group have gained a reputation for their experimental rock tracks, which extend from writing songs based on Isaac Newton’s theory of colour to ditties written at the tempo that people have . . . ahem . . . ‘intimate relations’.
Soul mates, marriage and Wal-Mart are all up for scrutiny.
Influences and references on the record include Federico Fellini, Iggy Pop and Ronald Reagan.
Yes, Ronald Reagan.
The former Pres lends the title of a tome of his to the track Rendezvous With Destiny.
