Now this is beautiful heartbreak. The sun is setting, refracting it’s rays off the calm evening waves, as one man sings along to the light of a fading tiki torch. The luau is writhing a few hundred feet down the beach but somehow you don’t even care. You’ve comeÂ acrossÂ this music and your feet suddenly melded with the sand as you stare transfixed, soaking it in, your breathing shallower with every note. As the song drifts away in it’s final minute you suck the last of your tropical drink through it’s neon straw and it suddenly tastes salty. You tell yourself it’s the sea air but your cheeks know better.
Colorfeels are from Nashville, Tennesse, but so far seem to radiate the vibes of a different place all together. Their debut album is called Syzygy and is out now for name-your-price at Bandcamp. I’m getting it right now.
