COLOUR ME WEDNESDAY: Counting Pennies in the Afterlife: LP/CD

Jul 25, 2018

Colour Me Wednesday makes me so happy, as its members have a knack for writing songs that can be uplifting and make me shake an angry fist at the world all within the same sentence. The band has taken its indie pop approach and added a bit of an edge to it. A lot of this comes from Harriet Doveton’s guitar, which has always been a focal point for me and nothing has changed here. Likewise, lyrically, the Doveton sisters continue to write biting lyrics of a personal and socio-political nature, too. There are not many things better than witnessing a band making all-round improvements when one was already pleased with what they were doing—and that’s the case for me here. –Rich Cocksedge (Doveton, [email protected] / KROD, [email protected],
