Paint Me In Colour have bowled us away with their debut EP Labels Opinions & Preconceptions. If there’s anything this 7-track EP shouldn’t have, it’s labels and preconceptions.
Whilst they’ve officially been around since 2017, mostly writing and recording in their own studio, you’d be forgiven for not having already heard of this Liverpool 3-piece group. Since the release of their first two singles Feel It & 1968, which both eventually featured in the EP, they’ve been tucked away ensuring they flew out the traps with intent.
There’s certainly an eclectic mix, a beautiful journey between electro-acoustic soundscapes with their opening track Hello, acting as an introduction to the vast genre spectrum this band easily navigates, to the upbeat Jackson 5-esque Feel It. Harking back to the ‘prog rock’ days of Pink Floyd, where they’d explore different elements of music they wanted to tackle, we’re reminded with PMIC of that same element of freedom to their music.

Truly a unique sound, the punchy guitar seems a binding element for the band to springboard off of into new realms of musical ideas and motifs, with singer Olivia Springer ensuring her wonderful vocals never allow the song to run away from that grounded feeling of expression and emotion, and allow the listener to easily focus on the musicality of the group which certainly shines through.
Their debut EP marks the start of their discography output and we get the idea that Paint Me In Colour are definitely not short of musical ideas to fuel this incredible display of talent, not to mention the hype for their eye-catching performances which we hope we’ll be lucky enough to see in the very near future!
For any fans of the band’s own influences, which include Aretha Franklin, Pink Floyd & David Bowie, you’ll be pleased to know they’ve worked towards blending a wonderful harmony of these artists and genres and brought Liverpool yet another incredible group to keep tabs on as a sure-fire festival favourite.
