“A sound that bounces around a ton of contrasting styles. The heavy, meandering grooves they roll out are the Yin to their alter-mathy-ego Yang” – Metal Hammer

“Under The Sun” is the third upfront track to be lifted from the debut album by stoner/groove rock band InTechnicolour. Newly signed to Big Scary Monsters, the five-piece will be releasing the LP in early 2020.  View / share at THIS LOCATION

Premiered this past Sunday, 10th November, on Dan P Carter’s Rock Show and launching digitally on 12th November, this latest blistering cut follows the “Doomer”, “Shaker” and “Miami Funk” singles which gained high profile radio support including BBC Radio 1, Planet Rock, Kerrang! Radio and NPR, to add to press props from Upset, Metal Hammer, Punktastic and The Monolith, to name a few.

Brighton’s InTechnicolour combine haunting, powerful vocals with suspenseful, progressive clean sections and anthemic, unforgettable choruses, landing somewhere between the slack desert-groove of Kyuss and Karma to Burn. However, their influences don’t end there, as their penchant for combining simple yet deeply satisfying riffs with a dynamic vocal style calls to mind the sounds of Baroness, Gojira and Mastodon through to Drenge. A tour de force on the live stage, in the last year-or-so they have supported Black Peaks as well as heading out on the road as part of Upset Magazine’s ‘About To Break’ tour alongside fellow rising rock acts Bitch Falcon, Drones and Haggard Cat.

“Under The Sun” locks into a propulsive, riff-heavy groove from the outset, showcasing a slightly more sparse and hypnotic leaning from the band on one of their most immediately accessible and relatable tracks yet. Frontman Tobie Anderson elaborates on the track: “My lyrics on Under The Sun deal with mental health, and specifically the weird and wonderful juxtaposition of feeling depressed but at the same time not wanting to feel anything else. Not wanting someone to help you get out of the place you are in, mentally, but instead you would rather that they join you”, says Tobie Anderson. “I suppose it’s about having company and feeling lonely when you’re in one of those headspaces. The need for someone else to empathise with your nonsense.”

Gaining a reputation for their entertaining videos, InTechnicolour are set to accompany “Under The Sun” with another attention-grabbing clip on release date.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
