Colour the Atlas – Building Skyscrapers (E.P. Review)

Rating:

Colour the Atlas combines the gorgeous falsetto, airy vocals of Jess Hall with the guitar styling of Alex Stone in a perfect partnership. ‘Building Skyscrapers’ is a festival EP for the summer. It’s loud while still remaining gentle. The third track, ‘Blue Eyes’, is the stand-out song with its more stripped back style. It has that Bon Iver softness with heart-cramping honesty. ‘All these pills are making me tired.’ It’s truly beautiful and stills the album, providing a gap for silence whilst saying more than any of the other tracks. It’s a loose and a relaxed EP which provides the perfect snapshot of this new superb quartet.
