Melbourne’s Flyying Colours deliver a strong package with this EP. There’s clear traces of a lot of the originators of the genre in here, and they deliver it with class. High quality shoegaze!  I’ve included a wider description in the details underneath from Shelflife’s website.

Shelflife presents the US release of Melbourne shoegaze/psych outfit Flyying Colours self-titled 5-track EP coming March 11 on limited 12" vinyl.

True to their name, Flyying Colours unashamedly display their influences in this debut: tone bending MBV/Swervedriver guitars, Ride's bass hooks and the familiar soft hush of early 90s male/female vocals. Add to that their own edgy, refreshing pop-mindedness and it makes for five completely brilliant tracks.

The EP includes pile-driving single "Wavygravy", a layered noise anthem jumped on by national radio and the international shoegaze blogosphere on its Oz release last April. Other stand out tracks are psych-rock opener "Like You Said", "Feathers" with its chorus-y jangle and lush vocals and the cool-down of closing track "Bugs."

Formed in 2011, Flyying Colours is Brodie J Brümmer (vox/Guitar), Gemma O'Connor (vox/Guitar) and the drums & bass of brothers Sam and Joshua Dawes. Before "Wavygravy" they received a lot of attention for their explosive live shows, setting them well apart from others occupying Melbourne's growing 90s/shoegaze scene. Flyying Colours have just completed an Australian tour and are currently recording tracks for their debut album.

Flyying Colours EP is a co-release with Club AC30 in the UK in a limited edition of 500 180 gram 12" copies worldwide with mp3 download. There will be unique colored vinyl per label -- 250 copies on black grape for the US and 250 on royal blue for the UK.

For fans of: Ride, Teenage Fanclub, Swervedriver, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, Pale Saints, The Lilys

Price $13
