The three piece (and often friends) have recently dropped their brand new EP, Anyone & Everyone via their own hard work and collaborations with Wiener Records in the US, KROD Records in France and French/English publicists, What Happened to Your Band?.
To date, this is the second EP alongside another, as well as a full length, showcasing a band well on their way up since their audio debut in 2013. Colour Me Wednesday carry a strong DIY socio-political ethic and determined mentality that has seen them play as far afoot as New York and other spots on the US East Coast, as well as collaborations with various independent labels along the way.
\\Anyone and Everyone//
Colour Me Wednesday are very vocally impressive, with the soft, playful and attention grabbing style, full of strongly accented English that implores you to listen from the first note, which works particularly well in track one, ‘Don’t Tell Anyone’ with it’s tale of self struggle and everything before and after.
The line, ‘Your analysis is tired and old‘ is something that really sticks out and a perfect line I may have to borrow in use against people who’s manner may well be (is) exactly that.. Punk music, providing you with anti-everything one-liners since 1976.
That may seem like a negative compliment, but it isn’t, stylistically that’s where you go and your happy when you get there. There’s also an ode to The Clash somewhere here, maybe not even in this track, rather the release in general, but it’s there.
‘I know that everyone , Wants to get the better of me – And they are welcome to
If it’s what they wanna do. I’m gonna lose so much, It’ll make you cry – And you’ll wonder why you even tried.’
‘Horror Story’ was leading to a slow orientated finish, then ‘In Your Shoes’ is that very finish. Softer and more dulcet, with tin-sound guitar’s gently floating around you head, the vocals as welcome and transfixing as ever and a Synth in the background is that relaxing addition you didn’t know you were craving.
