Introducing…Crooked Colours

They may not be one of Australia’s most recognisable acts, but fittingly for their understated sound, they’re a group that’s been quietly chalking up some major achievements since emerging from Perth in 2015.

Their underrated debut album Vera had genuine streaming hits (‘Flow’ is up to 18 million plays and counting) and took some interesting risks (like linking up with Ivan Ooze on ‘I Hope You Get It’) and sought to solidify a sonic style – a blend of downtempo dance music with melodic sensibilities and live instrumentation and sampling.

Their slow-burning sound doesn’t hit you straight away, but its designed to intoxicate you – a spell that’s very difficult to shake off once its effect does take hold.

That bewitching element runs even deeper on their second album Langata, which posits Crooked Colours to follow in the footsteps of RÜFÜS DU SOL or Mansionair – Australian electronic trios who’ve built a following overseas with their meticulous production and a live show that lives up to that sonic.


Music by Bergman: Mansionair

Despite having just a handful of releases to their name, Sydney based trio Mansionair have successfully honed their sound and established their blueprint. After amassing over a million streams in under two months with their stunning debut single ‘Hold Me Down’, the pair have gone on to support the likes of London Grammar, CHVRCHES and alt-J on tour. The band share a sonic space with artists like alt-J whilst retaining their own unique and sensitive tone.

They will release their long-awaited debut album “Shadowboxer” on March 1, 2019.  The trio unveiled a new song “We Could Leave” as the final single from the album.
