As the acclaimed three-piece Australian outfit Crooked Colours gear up for their first major US headlining tour, the band have now released a carefully curated remix pack for their most recent single “I’ll Be There”. The tune received remix duties from some of the greatest record producers in the electronic genre, including fellow Australian flagship act Bag Raiders, Grammy Award-winning record producer Sharam, Belgium’s Kolombo, Portuguese multi-talented musician and skateboarder Xinobi, and more.
“I’ll Be There” arrived just over two months ago and served as the debut single from Crooked Colours’ sophomore LP, due for release in 2019. The single was paired with the announcement of the band’s massive US headline tour, which kicks off in just two weeks. The band is slated to hit key cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and more while making a massive appearance at East Coast staple Suwannee Hulaween.
Recently celebrating the first anniversary of their debut album ‘Vera’, Crooked Colours have been humbled by the overwhelming support from fans and industry alike over the last 18 months. 2018 saw the band hit the road with Irish singer EDEN on the UK and Europe legs of his album tour run. The project and new exposure has taken the trio to new heights, with the album hitting #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart and receiving a staggering 30 million collective online streams, which led to extensive touring of Australia, United States, UK and Europe totalling an impressive 83 shows and festivals to date.
Penned during their time on the road, ‘I’ll Be There’ was a perfect re-introduction for the group, taking some of the instrumental timbre which has become synonymous with the Crooked Colours style, whilst injecting layered tribal influenced vocals, hypnotic loops, and driving synths throughout.
Having only toured locally prior to the release of ‘Vera’ it is a huge testament to the band, that in their first overseas ventures throughout 2017/18 they managed to sell out shows in Los Angeles, New York, London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Stockholm only naming a few.
It only seems right that Crooked Colours’ are receiving edits from some of the most notable acts in the game, as they now step up to the plate as one of the world’s most exciting live electronic acts. Using Bag Raiders’ ear for alluring melodies, like that seen in their global hit “Shooting Stars”, pulling the iconic low end from underground favorite Sharam, dance-floor tendancies of Kolombo, and the nuanced qualities of Xinobi’s records, this remix pack is one deserving of countless spins by the casual listener and forthcoming festival stages alike.
