Scotland’s Future Colours have returned with their latest serve of self-proclaimed indie-rock noise, ‘Anchor’, and it’s quite the anthem.
Its gentle, soft start is a masterfully crafted gateway to what descends into a bombastic wave-crash of riffs and drums, seamlessly woven together with ultra-smooth vocals. There’s a bit of Biffy Clyro about it, but I can’t help but be reminded of some of Funeral For A Friend’s more melodic, less metal-driven material, too. Although that’s just a fun coincidence, the point is: Future Colours know their way around a solid song.
This new tune comes just ahead of their headline Glasgow show later in September. While you’re in for an evening of guitar-fuelled finery from the lads if you’ve booked tickets, I’ve no doubt ‘Anchor’ will be especially lapped up. Go and give it a spin now.
