Colour Kane are one of the new breed of dream popsters following on from the genre’s masters, the Cocteau Twins. Colour Kane is lush cascading guitars and sweet soaring vocals propelled by driving bass and electronic beats. The band’s music draws a wonderful arc that both defines and divides melancholy and bliss. Where so much dream pop is described through aesthetic alone, Colour Kane radiate atmosphere and shifted emotion wrapped in jewelled blankets and honey gauze.
The band developed from the seeds of the Abricot project, comprising Belgian music scene veterans Bruno Kimpe and Joeri Gydé. The pair teamed up with vocalist Marjan Snykers and Colour Kane was borne.
The band’s music found Cocteau Twin, Robin Guthrie, who offered his support, ultimately leading to the band supporting Robin during his Lumière shows in Belgium. In addition Colour Kane’s debut album, “A Taste Of” features a Robin Guthrie remixed track.
