It’s the emotive, dreamy quality of Gang Colours‘ debut EP, ‘In Your Gut Like A Knife’, that really grips the listener to his/her core; indeed, all the way to the gut. Floating in ambiguity, not leaning towards one genre nor another, its organic simplicity leads to a unique groove: one that maybe hasn’t been paved just yet.
As a portal into a world of daydreams, tumbling into shadows and embracing luminescence simultaneously, Gang Colours turns drum patterns into magic. Breeding surreal headphone-friendly landscapes, he fills them with unexpected sounds that would otherwise seem out of place. Within his intricate collages however, they nestle so comfortably – it’s hard to remember their usual context. At times his sound effects strike a peculiar balance between otherworldly and familiarity (reminiscent of slide whistles or insects buzzing). At other points they conjure a sense of longing. Think Mount Kimbie with a playful sense of humour, Burial on a soft, sunny dancefloor, Gold Panda with an R&B lean.
