CROOKED COLOURS New album and GTM sideshows

Crooked Colours 
have announced that they will be releasing their sophomore album Langata on May 17, a touch late for their appearance at Groovin the Moo on Saturday, May 11 but in perfect time for a sideshow at Metropolis Fremantle on the album’s release day, Friday, May 17.

The trio have recently released new single, Hold On, which follows I’ll Be There and Do It Like You. Speaking about the track, Leon De Baughn says “I remember the idea for this track first came to me while I was driving home from the beach. We had just got back from touring in the US and getting back to our summer inspired this track.  It started with the chords and the floating vocal line that ended up building into a club beat with the bouncing bass line.”

Langata is set to be a formidable record for the local-trio-done-good, with a track featuring Ladyhawke included in the track listing, and mixing done by Tim Watts and David Wrench, who’ve worked with the likes of Frank Ocean, The xx, Caribou and FKA Twigs. Speaking about the album Philip Slabber says, “Langata carries forward what we created with Vera while including what we learnt connects with fans while touring around the world.”

Langata is out May 17. Crooked Colours play Groovin the Moo and Metropolis Fremantle on Friday, May 17.
