The Color Forty Nine Drops A New Single And Video
The Color Forty Nine has a new single that hits those 90's radio underground alt-pop sounds and features some amazingly tasteful roots instrumentation like plucking violins, and melodica giving it a folk edge.
"Another World" is completely pure feeling and comes from an honest place as it boasts a calming and lush hook.
Stringed instruments float around you and the song is actually quite full and bright but it has this edgy undertone that lurks just beneath the surface.
This is a song that has some layers to it and it beckons bands like REM.
These guys sure know how to write a solid hook as that chorus sticks in your brain for some time and the whole thing soothes and sways as the sounds wash over you.
It's all incredibly enjoyable and if you're of a certain age, it will touch on a nostalgic sweet spot.
The track has a slightly rustic tonality to it but never loses that pop sensibility and this gives it a pretty radio friendly feel. You may even feel as though you've heard it somewhere before.
Even the music video for the single has that nostalgic style and also shows some of the band's character and presence.
"Another World" is a release that ramps up for the bands full EP release coming up on July 23rd and if we're lucky, we'll get more songs like this off the record.
The Color Forty None pulls off a beautifully performed mature songwriting style and weaves it into something you can float away with easily.
The song is warm and laced with heart so keep your ears and eyes open for these guys on the 23rd.
