All The Colours - You Know, I Don't

So whenever I get a track like You Know, I Don’t, I immediately have to gently apply the brakes and take a look in the rearview. I mean, someone is going to wreck you, it may as well be these guys. This track clocks in at 1:53 (will take longer to read this review, sorry) of riveting, soul-stirring, impropriety. It is, in fact, like so many others, my milieu. It’s a call from an ex-girlfriend kind of buzz. The kind of music your mother really did hate.

Rock n’ Roll somewhere along the line became legitimate, common play – this is not it. Melbourne trio, All The Colours releases this tightly knit little package of juvenile delinquency that encapsulates everything right about the 90’s; the last bastion of music from Earthlings. But I digress. All The Colours are way more heady than all that. Upon discovering their other releases on Spotify, these guys are everywhere regarding genre, almost to the point of being genre-less. Songs such as So High, Still Lookin’ and Love Story borrow elements of 60’s, 70’s, 00’s rock, always with their unique soulful elements and twists. I love diverse bands, listening to groups that explore, and are not afraid of putting their regurgitated knowledge of music on display is where it’s at. Especially in this playlist, make-your-own-album culture. They can’t help themselves, putting together a cohesive album of music is not on their agenda, the attention span runs out, they have more to give, thankfully.

All The Colours

It’s a call from an ex-girlfriend kind of buzz. The kind of music your mother really did hate.

True: You Know, I Don’t gets your attention like a recently unearthed Nirvana track, but there’s a lot more to this song when you get under the hood. There’s death-defying grunge guitar, but there’s also this element of manic arpeggiation behind it all. One thing remains true however; the gift of song is always present. This band can pen ‘em with the best of ‘em. So, I feel victorious to have crossed paths with these guys, I have no idea where they’re heading, but I’m following.

  • I like this style. Rugged buzz musically and super clean vocal approach is a nice yin-yang balance. This feels like if the Foo Fighters were starting out in music now, this would be the sound they started with!

  • I love songs like this, the way its produced makes it seem DIY or like it was done in one take. But the more you listen the more you hear all the hidden parts of the production, like how the backing vocals are panned to only one channel! Great rock track!
