Following the release of their debut album Vera, earlier this summer, Aussie trio Crooked Colours debut the visuals for third single ‘Come Back To You’ today on notionmagazine.com. Accomplished in atmospheric electronic indie, exploring both experimental and deeper dance sounds throughout their album, ‘Come Back to You’ is a slower jam that hints at something darker than the lyrics imply. It also suggests musical influences including Glass Animals and Chet Faker.
The visuals enforce this ambiguity, following a couple as they explore the city while discovering more about each other. Filmed mostly at night in pink and blue lighting, it brings to mind the idea that the more you know someone, the more dangerous it is. Producers Kill the Film keep the visuals mysterious with the use of voyeuristic shots which ensures the intimacy between the couple feels unsettling over romantic.
Already making a buzz in Australia, regularly moving up the hype charts, Crooked Colours hope to do the same over here with a series of European dates planned this autumn including Berlin and Cologne. Brits can catch them playing The Pickle Factory this October.
Crooked Colours will be playing London’s The Pickle Factory on October 18th. Get tickets here.
