Single review by firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the joys of music, and in particular new music, is finding a band early on and watching them develop. Some fall at the first hurdle, some spring out of the blocks but retire before the race is over, and others go on to dominate for a long time. It's too early to make any guesses as to the length and success of the career Colour Of Bone have in front of them, and these things can change in a flash. But since hearing, and writing about them last summer, it was great to hear the first official fruits of their labours with abrasive debut single 'Low Mode' earlier on this year.
Second single 'Itch' is released on Monday and is another fine effort. Again the band take the worlds of rock and electronica and fuse them together with a slightly coarse sound. They're not your conventional electro-rock band and seem to be developing their own style; something which will stand them in good stead for the future. There are many different levels here, from the light piano to the swooning synths and vocals, but also the occasional harsh buzz of electronics, battered drums and points where the vocals switch to something more aggressive. We'd say that Colour Of Bone are looking good for clearing that first hurdle.
