...Cameo Colours!

Kicking off the New Year on Kowalskiy is Edinburgh's Cameo Colours. At the tail-end of last year these four guys released their eponymous debut EP.  So, perhaps I'm a wee bit late hopping on the bandwagon, but I finally got around to asking guitarist Daniel Crichton a few questions.  Here's what he had to say about the band, their EP and what they have in store for you all in 2012.

Kowalskiy:  Who are Cameo Colours?
Daniel:  Cameo Colours are an Edinburgh based four-piece band made up of two brothers and a guitarist from Aberdeen and a guy from Canada who plays bass.

Kowalskiy:  How would you describe 'your sound'?
Daniel:  We’re a fairly new band so I don’t think we’ve quite found our ‘sound’ yet and we’re not really looking to hold ourselves down to one particular style or genre at the moment. However, I would say that although we all have varying musical tastes and influences the one thing that we all have in common is a huge passion for guitar-based music. This is where we get the majority of our influence from, whether it be alternative rock, indie, math rock or whatever. Lyrically the songs tend to be an outlet for frustration at personal issues within our day-to-day lives and dissatisfaction in the political systems and our consumer culture.

Kowalskiy:  PLUG AWAY!!!
Daniel:  We just released our self-titled debut EP at the end of last year and it is available to download from our Bandcamp page on a pay-what-you-like scheme (basically, just download it for free!). Also, the next gig that we have coming up is supporting Tubelord and Olympians at the Tunnels in Aberdeen on 23rd January. Both of those bands are definitely worth checking out.

Kowalskiy:  What can we expect from Cameo Colours in 2012?
Daniel:  I have to admit that we don’t have anything too ambitious planned as we don’t tend to plan too far in to the future. We can be quite an impulsive band, which can be a good thing, though; it will most likely lead to our inevitable downfall. Basically we want to get back in the studio as soon as possible because we have a bunch of new songs that we’ve been working on. So a new EP is on the cards for some point this year. We’d quite like to get some acoustic recordings done as well. Apart from that, we just wanna gig as much as possible.

So, if you liked the sound of Real Lies above, you can download the EP for FREE over here.  You have express permission from Daniel himself!  Though, I'm sure they wouldn't say no to a few quid if you were offering.  And, if you're the sort to do so, you can signal your intent to attend their Tunnels gig over on Facebook.
