Colouring, the alias of Nottingham-based artist Jack Kenworthy, just released “Lune” via UK-based label Bella Union, which houses other phenomenal talent like Beach House, Ezra Furman, and Father John Misty.
“Lune” features delicate drums and piano, which fluidly compliment his light, yearning vocals. For Kenworthy, “Lune” places emphasis on “teamwork in a relationship. It’s a message of togetherness between two people during adversity and how you prop each other up when the other feels weak.”
This testament remains a crucial theme throughout the song, touting powerful lyrics bolstering the “two hearts as one” outlook: “We’re choosing each other, as long as there’s eternity, as long as there’s you, there’s me.”
Pit-pattering percussion, ethereal vocals, and light piano pulsations build into an emotive vocal catharsis here, building with a dreamy, textural glow. “Lune” is an atmospheric, melodic beauty from Colouring.
Colouring has notably toured with the 1975 (not once, but twice), and has blown up on Spotify playlists multiple times.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
