With a distinctive, chill-vibe blend of indie rock and psychedelic groove and a touring history that includes The Belligerents, Gang of Youths and Ocean Alley, King Colour have solidified their place as a must-see act in the Sydney music scene. After working hard behind the scenes on their artist-led label Yeah Nah Yeah Records, the Inner West Sydney-based art-music power force are ready to give the fans what they’ve been waiting for announcing today the release of their hugely anticipated new single and video ‘Lost My Cool’.

“Lost My Cool was pieced together from a long jam we recorded in a rehearsal studio somewhere in Sydney quite a while ago,” explains drummer and vocalist, Dives. “It was one of the first subdued, more reflective tracks that we have written and is inspired by the slinky guitar work of Mac Demarco and Tame Impala’s sprawling, expansive texture.”

Alongside Jermango Dreaming and SCK CHX, King Colour are the pioneers of Sydney-based events collective and independent record label, Yeah Nah Yeah Records. Signing an exclusive deal with The Orchard, Yeah Nah Yeah Records’ first release will be King Colour’s ‘Mood Lighting’ EP in February next year.

“Yeah Nah Yeah is an artist-run label and party crew that is made up of all the King Colour members as well as members from SCK CHX and Jermango Dreaming,” tells Dives. “The Mood Lighting EP will be the first official release from Yeah Nah Yeah Records, marking the beginning of a really exciting release schedule.” 

With multiple sold-out events and planning the launch of a new record label it’s not surprising that the band took some time out after releasing ‘You Just Don’t Know It Yet’ and ‘Blue Horizon’, both of which huge attention from Australian media including Triple J and community radio. But Diggesy (guitars/bass) assures us that the boys are back and ready to punch through harder than ever.

“Our plans include some big shows in different states and collaborating with other party collectives. We’re also really exploring our sound and working on some new music to be released throughout the year.”

When explaining the EP, AJ (guitar/bass) tells us to expect an “explorative and reflective piece of music” that is a lot of fun.

“It’s the first collection of songs we’ve committed to releasing as a band and encapsulates music we’ve developed over quite some time.”

AMNPLIFY – DB

My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.

Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.

Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.

Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
