Annakye paints a visceral portrait of emotional exhaustion with new video 'Colours'

  • 1 min read

Australian rockers Annakye are quite rightly making waves with their electrifying new single 'Colours', a vibrant alt-rock anthem that explores the emotional rollercoaster of life's unexpected twists and turns.

Mastered by Brent Kolatalo (New York), the track showcases the band's evolution, especially with the addition of vocalists Lucas and Camron in late 2022. While deceptively mellow in the early moments, 'Colours' explodes into a sonic tapestry midway through, contrasting its melancholic lyrics with a vibrant and visceral rock sound. Themes of fading relationships and emotional exhaustion are painted with stark imagery, while the chorus's tone and emotional power is palpable. The repeated line of "so dead inside" is a chilling confession, showcasing a numb desperation born from constant struggle.

The juxtaposition of vibrant music and crushing lyrics is strikingly effective throughout, leading to the single quickly becoming one of Annakye's best release. The music video for 'Colours' is just as compelling, amplifying the song's message with band initially covered in white, then splattered with bursts of paint, manifesting a physical representation of the emotional turmoil the song describes.

With its energetic sound, powerful vocals, and introspective exploration of heartbreak, 'Colours' is a powerful showcase of Annakye's talents. The track's clever metaphors and repetition linger long after the song ends, creating an enduring sound that will stay with for days.

The band's seventh single since their 2022 debut, 'Colours' marks them as undeniable ones-to-watch in the alt-rock scene. You can check out the new video above, and be sure to follow Annakye online through their socials below.
