The single is available to download exclusively through Indiestore at present, with a view to charting in the independent charts at the beginning of May, if you haven't got your copy yet just click on this link... BUY SINGLE The single, Tonight I Let You Go is a song about the trials of the heart in the formative years; the movement from one relationship to the other. But this isn’t a soppy love story; far from it. Planting a brave face on the inner discomfort exposed within the lyrics, this upbeat number puts a lighter spin on darker issues; and it’s a paradigm that becomes all the more apparent when you meet the band members themselves. Even in casual conversation a sense of youthful theatrics buoyed with an almost innocent optimism prevails to the forefront. It’s certainly an infectious combination, but perhaps uncertain whether this bravado is a natural virtue or concealing more fragile tendencies. Analysis of the lyrics gives more insight into this realm, and it is from here that they have an outlet to let hidden emotions run wild and free. Notwithstanding this, theCOLOURS do not take themselves too seriously. Their euphoric stage sound is best summed up in the wry words of chief songwriter and singer Tom Pickford, “I suppose we're a bit more tragic than the Hoosiers, but less Danish than Alphabeat”. ‘Tonight I Let You Go’ was recorded and produced at Cottage Road Studios in Leeds with Andy Hawkins & Matthew Peel (Kaiser Chiefs/Pigeon Detectives). Perhaps it was not the most obvious match on paper, however studio sessions progressed so well work is underway on the debut album, due next year. You can expect a showcase for all things pop coupled with electronic intonations that border on Europop and melodies akin to early Wham. It will be an album to dance to, even if the lyrics leave you shedding a tear. For latest news and some more reviews go to www.thecolours.co.uk and www.myspace.com/thecoloursreading
