Brisbane six-piece Mosman Alder present ‘Colours’ the third single off their debut album “Humdrum Star” available now via Dew Process/Universal Music Australia ahead of some upcoming live shows in February and March.
Inspired by a conversation about the mystery of colour symbolism, ‘Colours’ is an ethereal ballad grounded by a tangible drumbeat and darker melodies and one of the more cryptic songs off the album.
“This was the last song written for the album. It’s a collective band favourite. I love the drums, they are like clockwork, like parts systematically clunking over inside a machine. I was in a bit of transitional period when writing this. There was a shift in my thinking towards life and the people around me. All for the better!.”
– Jackson Muir from Mosman Alder on ‘Colours’
‘Colours’ follows previous tracks from the band’s highly acclaimed debut album “Humdrum Star” – the lyrically dark but ultimately uplifting ‘Germland (of Julien Charbonneau)’ and the dream-pop anthem ‘Try Your Luck’.
After supporting Courtney Barnett’s a sold out Brisbane show last October Mosman Alder wrapped up 2014 with a successful national tour and an appearance at the Byron Bay leg of The Falls Music & Arts Festival. They’ve previously toured with the likes of Father John Misty, Swerverdriver, Besnard Lakes, Big Scary and more.
