Biography

The Colour is a local Sydney band with a diverse mix of musical interests that drives their musical style. The guys branded themselves after forming through chance encounters and formed friendships around the period of 2006.

Rob and Tim met at Sydney rock festival The Big Day Out whilst Gerren and Tim met at vocal classes. After playing together on a few occasions, the boys soon came to realise how well their musical abilities gelled and so the band was officially formed. Coincidently, Rob’s brother John, being a Bass Player then went on to join the The Colour once they started playing live shows.

The Colour’s unique sound is described by Tim the bands Keyboardist and Vocalist as “a varietal collage of sub-genre pop rock styles” or alternatively ‘Melodic Pop Rock’. The music is easy to relate to and melodically driven through strong vocal and symbolic lyrics that reflect the music they play.

Spending time rehearsing in the studio as well as recording their first EP “Play Extended” has taken up much of The Colour’s focus for the last year and a half. After a successful EP launch for “Play Extended” which packed out The Excelsior Hotel, Surry Hills in November 2008, it is clear that The Colour have only scratched the surface of their journey. The guys will be playing live shows extensively around Sydney for the duration of 2009.

Lyrics

Have It Your Way

Written By: The Colour

Verse

We’re always late because you’re wondering what to wear,
And that’s quite alright with me.
I’ll just be in here watching TV.
So just just call me when you’re there.

Well you’ve been in there two hours or more,
Are you painting me a smile?
Even though you sometimes get me all fired up,
Without you I’d be no more.

Chorus

I’ll be there always, however long that is
Your intention, whatever that means
You’ll have it, you’ll have it your way baby.

Verse

I’ve got no money and I’ve got nothing to say,
But I can sing you my song.
There’s separation almost every single day,
And yet I’m here to stay

Chorus

I’ll be there always, however long that is
Your intention, whatever that means
You’ll have it, you’ll have it your way baby.

Verse

I often get the feeling, we ain’t going to make it.
Then I remember my song.
There’s a line in there that, never ever goes away.
It says I’ll be there always.

Chorus

I’ll be there always, however long that is
Your intention, whatever that means
You’ll have it, you’ll have it your way baby.

Miss Understood

Written By: The Colour

Verse
If I could see myself through your eyes.
I’d sit and stare at me for good.
Nothing short of in the limelight.
It feels the way I knew it would.

Pre Chorus
Well I could help you out girl
I’ll show you how it is
It’s not that you’re so hopeless
You’re just a little miss

Chorus
Understood, Understood.
A little miss understood
You’re miss understood yeah, yeah.
Well you’re miss understood
A Little miss understood.
You’re a little miss little miss little miss little miss
Little miss understood.

Verse
If you could see yourself through my eyes
You’d probably wonder if it’s good
It’s just A little indiscretion
You never act the way you should.

PC
The Time has come for something.
Because right now nothing fits
I would try explaining
But you’re still just a miss

Chorus
Understood, Understood.
A little miss understood
You’re miss understood yeah, yeah.
Well you’re miss understood
A Little miss understood.
You’re a little miss little miss little miss little miss
Little miss understood.

Hidden Talents

Written By: The Colour

V
They Say it’s all my fault
I don’t even know why they might
It’s just a shame I can’t
Remember what happened last night

PC
The word is I’m a loser.
At least I’m good at that
And I know it can’t get worse

Chorus
I’ve got some hidden talents,
But can’t remember where they are.
If you think I’m unbalanced,
It’s cause the drinking went too far.
It’s just the stars above us,
That make me be this way.

V
You’ve gone into revolt,
Don’t want no piece of me anymore
You’re rubbing in the salt
But it ain’t hurting me like before

PC
You say that I’m a bore now
I can’t argue with that
But maybe I can change my ways.

Chorus
I’ve got some hidden talents,
But can’t remember where they are.
If you think I’m unbalanced,
It’s cause the drinking went too far.
It’s just the stars above us,
That make me be this way.
