“In Motion” By Colouring

Colouring has debuted their first single via Huw Stephens’ show on BBC Radio 1 and online via The FADER. “In Motion” introduces a unique new vision from London-based band Colouring, who joined Interscope Records in 2015. Drawing upon his childhood influences that range from underground electronic music to pop, songwriter Jack Kenworthy combines propulsive rhythms with moody atmospherics to create celestial yet driving songs.

Fifties painter Mark Rothko, known for his large solid swaths of color, once claimed to have no real interest in the color itself or whatever form it took, only in expressing simple human emotions. In a similar sense, Colouring is the culmination of several sonic hues-instrumental and electronic, pop and underground, heart and body-but the aim is all feeling. London’s Jack Kenworthy imbues his work with a wide-eyed relatability, whether he’s exploring elation, obsession, or even melancholy over a swirl of lush house rhythm, post-dubstep atmosphere, art rock eclecticism, and sticky hooks. And as for form, the singer/pianist/producer isn’t alone. Colouring is rounded out by bassist Dom Potts, guitarist Sean Reilly, and drummer Alex Johnson-a lithe, powerful team for this mercurial but driven music.
