Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
it does a lot of the little things I like most in UW tracks, but it’s a funny choice for a lead single, and kind of encouraging too. I’m sure it’s got a real one in there somewhere but it’s nice to see them pull back a bit.

Similar impression for me. A great groove, lots of bleeps and bloops, buzzy effects and vocoded phrases...pretty classic UW sound. There's a high twinkly synth pattern starting at 2:30 that reminds me of The Chemical Brothers' "it doesn't matter" (live version from "Don't Think" DVD).

Feels a lot like episode 1 tracks of Drift. Looking forward to studio cuts of the other new tunes

yes! i just described it as It Doesn't Matter + Dark & Long (part of that stuttering synth reminds me of a Dark & Long pattern.)

plus the "Don't Speak" put me in the "Don't Think" mindset already.

Reminds me of Monkey Wink with the acid synth that floats in and out.

I just hope this will lead to Drift Series 2. What ever shape it will take. And I wish this was ready when they were in Tokyo. What a banger! I’m in love.

Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
mental how it fades out for me. I am reminded of how when we had the appleshine teaser, a lot of folk felt it led to something else, and that is the impression I have with this release.
Also, thanks to -1 for the interview post. Fascinating to hear this song pre-dates drift.

Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
Personally, I think it's really boring. Very little variation or progression, not the most interesting sounds. But who knows, it might grow on me.

I think And The Colour Red is much better on headphones. You get to hear all the little details, especially some of the spatial effects and stereo movement of sounds. This song definitely comes from their more dub side where it's all about constraint, precision, and the way sounds occupy a space.

Definitely. There is so much depth and layering. This will give many hours of discovery
