Celebrating the months and months of writing and recording, not to mention live shows that have brought them to this point, Melbourne’s All The Colours now release their new album, ‘Vol. 3.’ Music that has been honed and developed over countless jams and studio sessions, the album is a great representation of the direction the trio are heading in as this new decade gets underway.
The final result is a 12-track strong collection of heavy riffs, songwriting that shifts between the melancholic and fantastic, and a strong dynamic between this band of musicians that has been 20 years in the making.
Previously released singles Waste, Trigger, Why So Sorry? and Tear It Down each landed with impacts of their own throughout 2019. Listening to them as part of ‘Vol. 3’ as a whole, it’s easy to see how they fit into the broader picture All The Colours have painted. It is a picture that comes with heavier shades (Doom Song, Exorcism), and unique swagger (Cool Life, You Know I Don’t). “The music was an expression of our love for 90s alt-rock. We dived deep into the riff pool and came up with as many variations as possible, trying to find something fresh.” Josh Moriarty
Working with longtime collaborator Cian Riordan (Mini Mansions, Beth Ditto) on mixing and Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors) on production, the music came to life across sessions out in Los Angeles. The vibe of the iconic music city filters throughout the music with ease, as All The Colours thread their own story in throughout a tapestry of music that has come from the likes of Death From Above 1979 and Smashing Pumpkins.
Between them, All The Colours have a wealth of experience to pull from. Years of live performance and writing in different projects have brought them together in creating this frenetic fusion of rock music. Launching into this new chapter of the band’s story, All The Colours are anticipating their biggest yet.
“Whoa – I did not expect this burly rock band to take a sidestep into all your fave 90s bands – Blue Album Weezer, The Bends era Radiohead. I ain’t mad.”
Triple J Unearthed, Dave Ruby Howe
“A single-song soundtrack to angst of the highest order.”
“The Melbourne trio’s penchant for injecting moody, rich textures into classic garage alt-rock is as vital as ever…”
