Tony Goff & The Broken Colours released their self-titled E.P back in March, a record that has garnered much attention from BBC Radio, UK festival promoters, and even The Ordinary Boys. The latter liked the band’s vibe so much, they asked the foursome to support their 2017 UK tour. Oh, to be a fly on the wall…
So, what’s the ‘Tony Goff & The Broken Colours’ EP like?
In a nutshell, it’s a bite-size alt-rock donation to the indie-pop scene. The band focus just as much on lyric writing as they do on musicality, ensuring take-home messages are a prominent part of the EP.
The opener is a corker of a track. ‘Hard Shoulder’ is a firecracker, filled with toe-tapping tempo changes and head-bopping beats. The track even manages to squeeze in an impressive guitar solo towards the end – what’s not to like? Taking the tempo down a little, the EP moves on to ‘Losing Hope’ where lead singer, Tony Goff, teams up with female vocal powerhouse Alexandra P. Jade Stowe to deliver an emotionally-charged performance. For me, this is the stand out track on the EP and is one that must be earmarked for further listening. Acoustic guitars play a big part too, effortlessly intertwined with raw vocal performances on tracks such as ‘Hermit’.
So, who will like this record?
90s kids will definitely enjoy it. With four tracks, the EP is easily-digestible and so perfect for those summer road trips too. It’s all about quality, and not quantity, after all.
