Patience has been a cornerstone of Crooked Colours music career and their debut LP, Vera, coming five years after bursting onto the scene epitomises that patient approach.
By taking this deliberate, calculated approach the trio from Perth have concocted a laid-back record which is filled with wispy vocals, subtle beats and smooth R&B influences. This doesn’t mean that the record is slow or dull however, Vera still has moments which chug along nicely to persuade the listener to get up and dance.
This record is very much a product of it’s time and place echoing the sounds of other Aussie heavyweights, Rufus and Cut Copy.
This is a record that could easily be placed on repeat at a house party and never grow tiresome.
