THE COLOURS THAT RISE - GREY DOUBT LP (RHYTHM SECTION INTERNATIONAL)
On a collision course with Earth from the furthest reaches of the universe, The Colours That Rise announce their debut album Grey Doubt on the inimitable Rhythm Section International. Comprised of producer duo Simeon Jones and Nathanael Williams, The Colours That Rise have previously turned heads with 2017's 2020 EP released on Breaker Breaker (the label credited with breaking Ross From Friends). Returning with their most accomplished offering to date, Grey Doubt features acclaimed guests such as Yazmin Lacey, Yussef Dayes, and Andrew Ashong, each respectively complementing the incredible musicianship on display here, capturing the true zeitgeist of present day UK. Combining live instrumentation and analog synths, intricate, intertwining textures and melodies run deep throughout this beautifully crafted Afrofuturist voyage, exploring the darkest recesses of the galaxy, through weather-beaten and asteroid damaged synth waves and broken drum patterns reverberating out into the vastness of space. "Home Time" has picked up steam with support across BBC 6 Music and 1Xtra through the likes of Benji B, Tom Ravenscroft, Jamz Supernova, and Mary Anne Hobbs, who awarded it as her "Near Future" track.
