Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Soul :: The Meltdown - Colours In The Sky

The Meltdown - Colours In The Sky

The Meltdown - Colours In The Sky
Colours In The Sky is a moody soul ballad with a hint of twang, evoking big skies and long roads. Simon Burke’s tender vocal performance has shades of the Otis Redding and Sam Cooke and a more obvious country and gospel influence than previous Meltdown releases. Still firmly favouring the one room, one take style of analog soul recording, The Meltdown have dialed the the volume and the tempo down to ballad level without sacrificing any intensity.

Colours In The Sky is released to coincide with The Meltdown’s performance at Queenscliff Music Festival, the first of a run of festivals across Australia including Mullum Music Festival, Summer Of Soul & Riverboats Festival. Throughout the summer the band will be performing material off the new album leading up to its release as well as songs from their 2015 release, Better Days. Better Days, recorded in a day on a shoestring budget has since sold out three pressings of 7” vinyl and clocked hundreds of thousands of streaming hits on Youtube, Spotify and Soundcloud and featured in the soundtrack of US cable show Rosewood.

About this track...

From a band known for heavy dancefloor soul, Colours In The Sky marks a change - a piece of downtempo country soul evoking big skies and long roads. This finds Simon Burke’s honeyed voice at it’s most sensitive. Shades of Otis and Sam Cooke on a twangy southern tip.
