Still is a recently released second single by Colorado & Company, a Sydney-based quintet that nurtures such a mesmerizing sound. This particular composition serves as an appropriate continuation of Break, their debut number that these profoundly creative musicians also unleashed this year. Soundwise, Colorado & Company experimented with several complementary music genres to depict luxurious, complex, and ear-appealing sonic imagery. Perhaps alternative folk comes to mind first, but you’ll notice some of the finest properties borrowed from Americana, country, indie folk, soft rock, etc. However, don’t be surprised if you stumble upon some other styles because Colorado & Company fully stacked Still with some impressive ideas that will force you to spin this number over again.
Still is one of those songs that immediately gets into your listening apparatus and refuses to go. Colorado & Company thought about the entire structure of the song, so you’ll notice how every verse, pre-chorus, and chorus burst with detailed ear-appealing musicianship that unquestionably shapes the mesmerizing ambiance. You’ll hear how the excellent themes and leads performed on violin perfectly match the catchy chord progressions, warm-sounding basslines, and moderate rhythmic sequences built upon well-accentuated beats, breaks, drum fills, and other percussive acrobatics. Of course, Still wouldn’t sound this good without an equally good vocal performance provided by a skillful singer who knows how to balance low, mid, and high notes. The entire band shines with impressive performance, and there’s no doubt you’ll include Still on your alt-folk/indie playlist. The single is available on all streaming platforms. Don’t miss it.
