| Appearing in late 2012, the Swedish quintet Colleagues captivated the blogs with their exuberant and versatile production. Downy-soft synths and blankets of melodic-soft skin that expands alongside their overside choruses, their debut single instantly captured a band with advanced grasp of both songwriting and melody.
Returning with a new single, Tears, the first release on London In Stereo x Fierce Panda's In Stereo Records, Colleagues have refined their sound into a more dynamic arrangement, losing none of the spirited joy of their sound in the process. The two-track single (Tears / Parents' House) bristles with nostalgia and a romanticism for the ordinary moments. Tears and Parents' House are whirlpools of enticing textures; its lyrical subjects revel equally in a successful night out with friends and nights spent alone in your bedroom dancing to a favourite song like no one's watching, showing promise for this young pop quintet extending far beyond the members' ages.
This is the inaugural release for In Stereo Records, a new label launched as an imprint on the mighty Fierce Panda Records, from the people who bought you London in Stereo. The release will comprise of an original screen printed tote bag, which will be available worldwide.
