Letters and Colours

BandRockAlternative

Lettters and Colours deliver a sound that can be compared but not replicated. Unique but maniacal, concise but intense; in an oversaturated industry, L&C can be distinguished by one thing: their resonance.

Biography

The band is a 4 piece based in Sheffield, England. They were formed in 2004 as a two piece, but have gone from strength to strength since recruiting live bass and drums. The band is heavily influenced by the Sheffield post-punk scene, which spawned bands such as Artery, Pulp and Vice Versa; as well as The Cure and Joy Division.

Letters & Colours construct songs that are sometimes calculated and often vibrant. Musically they are immediate and militant in equal measures.

They completed their first nationwide tour in February 06, and will embarking on a full scale tour in October. Letters and Colours is currently number one of the NakedAlien.com music charts and have received national airplay on BBC radio. They were
also chosen as a featured artist on TagWorld.com 'Confrontation' and 'Bigger than Life' is their debut double a-side CD single.

Lyrics

Chase the Bull

Written By: Letters & Colours

You tried to change my perceptions,
To highlight the things that I lack,
But you won’t hurt me cos I chase the bull,
But I’d imagine your guilt if you had,

You tried to change our relations,
To steal the power I have,
But sex won’t work cos I’m self secure,
So you’ll have to try a new tack,

Red is the colour,
Frustration is the word,
L is the letter,
That darkens their world,

How can you say I’m neglectful?
You’d stab my back in a flash,
But you won’t hurt me cos I chase the bull,
But I’d imagine your guilt if you had,

Aesthetic whore hates all she wore,
The matador puts red before his wife… his wife and their sex life.

Confrontation

Written By: Letters & Colours

Left for dead in the graveyard,
Jumped upon by outsiders,
They questioned what I was their for,
I struggled to find an answer,

Left for dead in the graveyard,
Spat upon with ill feeling,
Conservative girls and their parents,
Delighted to read for these beatings,

What I’m confronted with are these unwanted feelings,
What I’m face to face with are these unwanted thoughts

My haphazard but good willed behaviour,
Was sufficient cause for her leaving,
But, the written word is deceptive,
Oh the written word is deceiving,

Forced apart from a loved one,
The emphasis is on leaving,
Who is the one that’s empowered?
And who is the one that’s left reeling?

What I’m confronted with are these unwanted feelings,
What I’m face to face with are these unwanted thoughts

Alpha

Written By: Letters & Colours

You’ve never held a gun?
You’ve never felt my power!
I’ll bring you to your knees!
Instil you all with fear!

And that’s my root,
And that’s my cause,

Why are you concerned?
I love the sense of power!
Its what makes us men!
The battlefield!

You wont hold my hand?
Cos I’m a tyrant mess?
But you should share my life!
Cos I’m the Alpha male!

And that’s my root,
And that’s my cause,

Why are you concerned?
I love the sense of power!
Its what makes us men!
The battlefield!
