The Belgian trio, Colour Kane, are a new breed of dream popsters following on from the genre’s masters, the Cocteau Twins. Colour Kane is lush cascading guitars and sweet soaring vocals propelled by driving bass and electronic beats. Colour Kane’s music draws a wonderful arc that both defines and divides melancholy and bliss. Where so much dream pop is described through aesthetic alone, Colour Kane radiate atmosphere and shifted emotion wrapped in jewelled blankets and honey gauze.
The band developed from the seeds of Abricot, comprising Belgian music scene veterans Bruno Kimpe and Joeri Gydé. The pair teamed up with vocalist Marjan Snykers and Colour Kane was borne.
The band’s music found Cocteau Twin, Robin Guthrie, who offered his support, ultimately leading to the band supporting Robin during his Lumière shows in Belgium. In addition Colour Kane’s soon to be released debut album, “A Taste Of” features a Robin Guthrie remixed track.
The band has also collaborated with Swedish producer and driving force behind Glorybox, Fredrik Johansson, leading to the remix of Colour Kane’s “Too Late”, the first single to be taken from “A Taste Of”.
