After a little hiatus, a little band from Seattle called Wonderful has returned. On their new song, “Rainbow Colors”, we are treated to a colorful style of pop somewhere along the lines of experimental pop outfit Le Loup. But Wonderful came a few years before that band, having released their debut in 2003. “Rainbow Colors” features plenty of chant-like vocalists, heavily thumping drums, and overall colorful vocal and instrumental harmonies.
You just don’t hear sounds like this that often, which is a shame as Wonderful’s “Rainbow Colors” is an absolutely astonishing song, one you won’t soon forget. It is, as the band’s name would suggest, quite wonderful.
“Rainbow Colors” is off the band’s new album, Wake Up In Dreamland, which came out earlier this week. Wake Up In Dreamland is the culmination of five years of recording (2005-2010), recorded in between putting together other albums with their dance-pop band U.S.E., as well as touring with U.S.E. Recording took place in various Northwest havens, including Mount Rainier, Cannon Beach, and my very own neck of the woods, Skagit River.
Check out “Rainbow Colors” below and grab Wake Up In Dreamland as soon as you can get your hands on it.
