I’m not going to lie, I was pretty late to The Avalanches’ fan group. I heard “Since I Left You” about half a year ago but I was immediately blown away by how good the band was. It’s been over a decade since the plunderphonics band released any new music, teasing for years that music would be released. Only recently, The Avalanches shared “Frankie Sinatra”, which I found odd and I really couldn’t pinpoint how I felt. But looking on Reddit and with the release of their second single “Colours”, my faith in their upcoming album Wildflower has been restored.
Set to release on July 8, Wildflower is a 21-track album that’ll either break our hearts or keep them afloat. With “Colours”, we get the bright, upbeat sound of The Avalanches that made us faithful fans in the year 2000. The nostalgic intro is a perfect way to set up the track for old fans and a great way to introduce new ones to the timeless music they make. The soft yet distorted vocals add a sense of calmness to the track. This definitely gets me excited to hear Wildflower in full in a coupe of weeks.
