WATCH: Colorama’s New Single, ‘Candy Street’
The Independent revealed today that Edwyn Collins, a longtime favorite of mine, picked British band Colorama’s ‘Box’ as his favorite album of 2010.
Having never heard of the band before, I clicked over to YouTube and found this single ‘Candy Street’ from the aforementioned album. I absolutely love it — it’s very catchy.
Now, keep in mind, I’m a huge early Kinks fan, and this song could fit perfectly on “Something Else By The Kinks” or “Face to Face” — which happen to be two of my favorite albums.
Great songwriting, 60s psychedelic sound, Ray Davies-esque vocals — I’m there!
Colorama’s frontman, Carwyn Ellis, has been described as a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and music producer who resides in Wales. He has performed and/or collaborated with Edwyn Collins, Oasis, UNKLE, Shane MacGowan, Roddy Frame, Paul Cook, and many others.
Without further ado, here’s Colorama new song ‘Candy Street’:
