I’m always going to fall in love with a song that has a sparkling shimmer on the back of a chord as it washes over the front of the mix, and this tune from Colour of Spring is no exception. While the song always seems on the verge of exploding, the band manage to hold that back until the back end of the tune, allowing for an increased bit of tension that draws listeners into the song. I appreciate that they never turn their back from the innate pop qualities that lurk within, and with that attitude, I have high hopes for their self-titled EP on June 23rd via House of Love.
I’m really glad Scott Reitherman is still writing music, as his work in Throw Me the Statue has sorely been missed. Of course, now that’s he operating under this new Pillar Point moniker, he hasn’t strayed too far from his original sounds. He’s still combining these melodious hooks with pop-centric focus. Vocals are gentle, yet lofty, rising and falling throughout this song. It’s just another sign that his upcoming self-titled debut is going to be quite enjoyable for fans of easy-listening pop; it’s being released by Polyvinyl Records on February 25th.
