The ‘In Technicolour’ EP follows last year’s fruitily emotive ‘You Say I Kiss Like A Girl’ EP. This second release sees the band build on their first effort as The Caress delve into eclectic influences and a more mature, layered sound. The EP was recorded at The Gravity Shack in South London with Gareth Ashton and Tucker Nelson in December 2017.
Earlier this year ‘Suffragette Look’ and ‘Breaking Up’ were released as singles, the latter being written with Roy Orbison and ‘Grease’ in mind and defined by the tortured line "Love is a pain in the heart.”. The singles saw The Caress headline The Social, support label mates Desperate Journalist at Oslo (in London), head to The Great Escape in Brighton and play a special midsummer show at the Sebright Arms.
Such is romantic life with The Caress, who say of the ‘In Technicolour’ tune: “The track is a 6 minute euphoric and melancholic nod to ‘80s indie bands, with a memorable chorus and a dreamy, ethereal instrumental outro. Lyrically, the title track deals with themes of ending relationships through the juxtaposition of bleak and colourful imagery.”
