New Music: Belau "Colourwave"
Belau are one of the most promising electronica newcomers around the European music scene and their long-awaited album "Colourwave" has finally arrived.
Hungary's Belau are Peter Kedves and Krisztian Buzas, and they are certainly making a name for themselves across Europe, having had almost 200 live performances in 23 countries in just three years. Their debut album, “The Odyssey” won the Hungarian Grammy in best electronic music album category and they are due to start another tour in the Autumn.
"Colourwave" is a concept album with an underlying Caribbean theme, filled with chilled vibes and all featuring female vocalists. The album combines sounds of nature with modern beats to produce a delicate ambient sound, easier on the ear but with deep, multilayered soundscapes and fronted by some of the most enchanting and unique voices I've heard for a while.
Belau have stated that their long-term plan is to release a series of concept albums which capture the vibe of different geographical regions around the world.
"Colourwave" is a delightful album for those warm days, where you want to sit in the garden with a cold beer and just chill. Definitely worth a listen!
