Shelflife presents the US release of Melbourne shoegaze/psych outfit Flyying Colours self-titled 5-track EP available March 25 on limited 12" vinyl.

True to their name, Flyying Colours unashamedly display their influences in this debut: tone bending MBV/Swervedriver guitars, Ride's bass hooks and the familiar soft hush of early 90s male/female vocals. Add to that their own edgy, refreshing pop-mindedness and it makes for five completely brilliant tracks.

The EP includes pile-driving single "Wavygravy", a layered noise anthem jumped on by national radio and the international shoegaze blogosphere on its Oz release last April. Other stand out tracks are psych-rock opener "Like You Said", "Feathers" with its chorus-y jangle and lush vocals and the cool-down of closing track "Bugs."

Formed in 2011, Flyying Colours is Brodie J Brümmer (vox/Guitar), Gemma O'Connor (vox/Guitar) and the drums & bass of brothers Sam and Joshua Dawes. Before "Wavygravy" they received a lot of attention for their explosive live shows, setting them well apart from others occupying Melbourne's growing 90s/shoegaze scene. Flyying Colours have just completed an Australian tour and are currently recording tracks for their debut album.

Flyying Colours EP is a co-release with Club AC30 in the UK in a limited edition of 500 180 gram 12" copies worldwide with mp3 download. There will be unique colored vinyl per label -- 250 copies on black grape for the US and 250 on royal blue for the UK.

For fans of: Ride, Teenage Fanclub, Swervedriver, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, Pale Saints, The Lilys



Praise for Flyying Colours:

"blistering from start to finish. Kevin Shields-inspired shadows linger, while there are definitely traces of Swervedriver in that rock assault."
- Clash

"...sounds like a band with the confidence of having found their sound. Loud and sharp and sounding polished (as much as shoegaze can), 'Wavygravy' churns with absolute force."
- thevine.com.au

"This ain't no background music kids, this is the kind of EP that you need to take lying down and allow yourself to get lost in."
- hhhhappy.com

"It sounds big and it sounds good, like it was recorded with a cliff-face of amps in an abandoned wind tunnel"
- beat.com.au

"It's hard not to crush on the extensive, encircling sounds of Melbourne's Flyying Colours"
- nofearofpop.net
