FARR - Technicolour
1 Nov 2019
Immensely talented duo FARR stunned many with their recently released single ‘Paranoid’ and now, fresh off the back of touring with heavyweight Hayden James, the transatlantic duo (by way of L.A. and London) return with new single ‘Technicolour’.
Comprised of vocalist Roméo and producer Linden Jay (who has also produced for Rejjie Snow, LION SNOW, RITUAL and more), FARR met back in 2016 at a studio session that would soon snowball into the beginning of an incredible hybrid electronic project. Separated by oceans, the duo writes and creates their music via voice notes and memos and ‘Technicolour’ is the latest stellar by-product of that.
This new single brings an R&B edge to FARR's alt-pop, electronic soul sound. What starts out as an acoustic offering quickly evolves into a soulful ballad. Cut from the same cloth as trailblazers like HONNE and sounding like a grittier Sam Smith, FARR meld modern production with timeless vocals. Vocalist Roméo shines in this subdued track bringing a fearless quality to the track.
“‘Technicolour’ was the last song written for the album," says Roméo. "I'd been feeling fed up with the sad way I was seeing the world, which unfortunately I feel like a lot of us can identify with right now. I wanted to write something to make sense of it all. I was reaching for hope, reaching for a vividly coloured future rather than this grey cloud I felt I was sitting in."
FARR were hand-picked to tour with Hayden James on his recent ‘Between Us’ world tour, with Roméo also performing their collaboration track ‘Lost To You’ with Hayden at Splendour In The Grass 2019, and recently lent his vocals to Cosmo’s Midnight for their performance on ABC’s live music television show The Set.
Already gaining support from notable publications like BBC, Earmilk, Clash, Indie Shuffle, Notion, Hillydilly and accumulating millions of streams online, FARR are just getting started.STREAM/DOWNLOAD ‘TECHNICOLOUR’ NOW: https://etcetc.lnk.to/TechnicolourWE
