Uncage the colours...

Hotly-tipped (and deservedly so) London band, Films of Colour, have successfully grabbed the attention of much-loved, record-producing chap, Tony Visconti, with their version of David Bowie's Slow Burn...a track which Visconti had a hand and two ears in when it was recorded for the 2002 Heathen album.

Films of Colour’s version of Slow Burn came to Visconti’s attention earlier this year following the online buzz around the band’s single Capital/Persinette. After hearing Slow Burn, Visconti flew to London to see Films of Colour perform. He was blown away and is now lined up to work with them in the studio. Talking about the track and the band, he said:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"When I was given a batch of demos to consider working with Films Of Colour I was struck with how many catchy songs they had written. I was also impressed with the quality of their demos; that they were clever, creative lads was very apparent. But one song stuck out, sounding so familiar yet I didn't really recognise it until the second chorus.

I knew the song because I produced it with David Bowie for his 2002 Heathen album release. But Films of Colour had altered it so much they had clearly made it their own. I think Bowie is one of the most difficult artists to cover, since his versions of his own compositions seem to be the definitive versions. After I heard Films of Colour's version I was completely won over."

Now we can exclusively reveal this link on the band's site where you can download both the video and the song for free.

The track will enjoy a wider release on December 12th when it will be issued with one or two other tracks with the sleeve below...

 

 

Films of Colour were described by Fierce Panda/Label Fandango head honcho Simon Williams (who released the band’s debut single Actions) as the best band he’s signed since Radiohead and Coldplay. Media support has come from 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq who made them his Favourite New Band, The Guardian (New Band of the Day), The Independent’s Barometer of Cool along with continued national radio support from XFM, Absolute Radio and on Amazing Radio where they reached No 1 in the listener’s Chart .

Films of Colour are: Andy Clutterbuck (vocals), James Hatcher (guitar), Jack Allinson (bass/synths) and James Rees-Flynn (drums)
