Ivory [edit]
by Colours | Genre: Electronic/Dance | Release Date: February 26, 2016
 

COLOURS entered the studio in January 2015 to record their debut album, Ivory, with producer Shaun Lopez (††† Crosses, Lupe Fiasco, Deftones). Tamo explains the meaning behind the album’s title, “The album name Ivory holds a specific meaning for us. Actual ivory has an amazingly intriguing juxtaposition. Between the status symbol and richness of it, to the barbaric brutality of harvesting it, comes a comparable cause and effect for the album.”

Tipped as one of the “100 Bands You Need To Know” by Alternative Press, Ivory, COLOURS’ first official release, is available now.

Vibrant Musical Colours | Posted March 21, 2016
Electronic music is in right now. Wherever you look, there's another band that likes to infuse their music with techno. But finding one with some true, unique artistic value is difficult. Colours attempts to remedy this with an ambitious musical debut, Ivory

With haunting hooks and electro atmospheres, there's a surreal feeling to many of these songs. Lead single "Monster" is a musically spine-chilling piece that would sound at home in the closing moments of an episode of Person of Interest or The Blacklist. 

Another of the album's memorable cuts is the radio-primed "Remember." While some of the tracks in the middle tend to get lost amidst the electronic oceans, this is a definite musical hit. 

Unfortunately, from a Christian perspective, the lyrics tend to range from empty to somewhat concerning. While nothing here is explicit, there is a bit too much sensual imagery for my personal taste. So although there are definitely some musically intriguing things going on, I ultimately leave the record a bit unfulfilled on the lyrical substance side of things.

The Bottom Line: This has all the makings of an indie sleeper hit and will likely please fans of this brand of ethereal electronic pop, but Christian listeners may want to exercise some caution regarding the lyrics.
