something crazy in the air...maybe we've lost our heads...maybe
it's down to the high cost of producing and distributing cds...or
maybe it's just cause we love you so damn much.
Anyway, whatever the reason, we're making our new single, "Holy
Moley", available as a FREE

Here are some
nice things that people have said about the band:
Gorgeous Colours blend the best bits of Neil Young, Spinto Band
and The Violent Femmes into a thoroughly adorable whole that's still
recognisably their own, nowhere more so than on the genre-defying
"Hunting Something"...Expect to hear a lot more."
- Hot Press, list of Irish Acts to watch in 2007
beautiful and bright as their name implies, this Dublin fourpiece
are creating infectious, studied and beautifully crafted indie rock.
Tracks like the urgent, guitar-driven Hunting Something, the melancholy
I Miss You and the simply brilliant Burning, coupled with their
energetic live performances, mark them out as definitely being on
the road to greater things." - In Dublin Magazine
sheer pleasure the band take in playing, combined with the energy
and jubilant nature of the music translates into one of the most
enjoyable live bands in the country at the moment." –
UCD College Tribune (Artist of the Fortnight)
the right amount of time perfecting their craft, The Gorgeous Colours
release their debut single proper, in the form of live favourite
‘Burning’. Coming off like a version of Neil Young that
modern day lo-fi lovers will adore, it’s full of textures,
memorable to say the least and if we’re blunt, genius summed
up in four and a half minutes. Two thumbs up and a big grin on top.”
– Shilpa Ganatra, Hot Press review of “Burning”
to me again why The Gorgeous Colours haven't yet been picked up
by anyone in the usually-excitable A&R community? 'Hunting Something'
displays the band at their most inspired, dragging the genre of
Americana by its straggly hair right up to the present day. There's
trumpets ferchrissake!" – Review of “Hunting
Something”, Shilpa Ganatra, Hot Press
Gorgeous Colours debut single, “Burning”,
was released last November and managed to chart upon its release,
despite being released independently (it reached number 41, beating
Christina Aguilera and James Morrison into submission on its relentless
ascent to glory).
It was voted Single of the Week by the Cross
The Pond website, and described by Hot Press
as "genius summed up in four and a half minutes".
they have headlined several shows in venues such as Whelans and
Crawdaddy in Dublin, and supported acts such as Pop Levi, My Luminaries
and Switches. They played some well-received dates in London in
January 07, were selected to play on the IMRO showcase tour of new
Irish acts in March, and toured Ireland with The Immediate in April.
Hot Press also included The Gorgeous Colours in their list of Irish
bands to look out for in 2007.
With the launch
of their second single, “Hunting Something”,
The Gorgeous Colours continue to build on their
success thus far. The song was their second to enter the Irish singles
chart, as well as reaching number one in Phantom Fm’s chart.
Recent gigs have included a single launch at the Village, a second
appearance at the Castlepalooza festival, and an appearance on Spin
FMs breakfast show.
