#599: Colour of Spring - Snow (single review)

From its opening imposing walls of noise, the latest single from Leeds shoegazers Colour of Spring, is both bold, and much like its namesake, staggeringly pretty. Coming off the back of the band’s previous single Pillow, Snow feels weightier, more reserved, possessing a brooding quality that’s much more introspective than previous cuts appeared; the towering guitars falling away throughout the verses, replaced instead by a shimmering, melancholic vocal delivery that in turn offsets the track’s inherent weight.
