The Colour - Demo

The Colour was a 2002 indie rock/pop band. At least at this early stage of their career before they made their only full length album (which I personally feel somehow had more of a resemblance to like, Cold War Kids and Hard-Fi in some regards), their earlier material here reminds me of dancy post-punk revival bands like The Strokes, The Rapture, Radio 4, and whatnot. May not appeal to all of you regardless, but still.

Some buddies online had been asking who the artist to "Clapham Junction" was (as we didn't know the song title either), and it took me mooooonths to finally figure it out. It was a catchy song, and the vocalist sounded almost like an incoherently mumbling Robert Smith, which made the lyrics quite difficult to figure out (singer kinda loses that voice later on).
This was really-really hard to find! I think this was up for download on their website in early 2004, which I think is where these files originally came from. "Little Wren" was apparently kind of a popular song for them as well, I think. Anyway, I had some requests for this, so without further ado, enjoy!

1. "Out & About"
2. "Clapham Junction"
3. "Little Wren"
