Interview: Crooked Colours – “The Better Songs We Write, The Better Our Sets Get”
Perth-based electro elite Crooked Colours have had a busy 2014 but managed to sneak some time in mid tour to chat with Music Feeds about their busy schedule and what they’ve got planned in for the months ahead.
“You’re always a little bit apprehensive before a tour,” explain the band who have just wrapped up their national tour in support of their new EP In Your Bones. While they say it’s a continuos “struggle” to transform their intricate tracks to the live stage, they say they’ve definitely gotten better at it. “When we write new music that’s how we build on our sets. The better the songs we write the better our sets get.”
Earlier this year the Perth boys set out on a run of dates supporting Sydney outfit RÜFÜS. “That was a very educational trip for us. They’re just super professional, they just knock it out of the park,” muse the band. “They really know how to party too, by the way,” they added.
Not content with slowing things down, the Crooked Colours boys tell us they’ve also been working on new music. “We’ve been kind of tinkering away at doing stuff. We’ve been touring a lot so it’s hard to put anything down, but when we are home we’ve been working on stuff and we’ve got a pretty solid idea of where we want to go with it,” they explain.
As well as teasing some new tracks to be released later this year, the band say they plan to get back on the road in just a few months.
