PREMIERE: Zero 7 - The Colour of Spring (feat. Only Girl)
Talk Talk’s ten-year reign as Britain’s coolest amorphous rock band, with styles shifting from new wave trailblazing in the early ‘80s to post rock conclusions in the early ‘90s, was a great one, and we’re sad it’s over. So, too, are acts of today who’ve also been deeply touched by Talk Talk’s work: Grandaddy, Arcade Fire, members of Depeche Mode, Bon Iver, The Verve, Guillemots and more. To pay tribute they’ve compiled a blango double LP called Spirit Of Talk Talk and wrapped it in the band’s scrapped sleeve art from 1983. Today’s taste? Zero 7’s rendition of “The Colour Of Spring” (feat. Only Girl), an electronica aerial swirl crucial for anyone in need of a reset. Fall in, then pre-order away.
