Colouring Sign to Bella Union and Release New Single and Video “Lune”
London St Pancras Old Church show on 4th October
Bella Union are thrilled to announce the signing of Colouring, the recording alias of singer and musician Jack Kenworthy, who releases his luminous new single “Lune” via the label. Made with long-time collaborators Gianluca Buccellati and Mikko Gordon, the track comes accompanied by a meditative and beautifully shot video directed by Pierce Tews.
One of the most moving releases to experience, capturing sincerity, soul and this heartfelt lyrical direction. The tones are so gentle mirroring the fragility of the creation and the influence that produced such a stunning composition. The drum shuffles cement the hypnotic movement that grows in the impressionable atmosphere, and the stirring textures that resonate in the ambience command the listeners’ full attention as they loop and expand. The additional textures and tweaks, the shimmering effects that layer the soundscape, it all oozes such a sublime status. But it’s the deeply emotive vocal harmonies that glide above the softer passages, injecting further affection into the heart of this personal release.
This is a very powerful track, a beautiful release that captures the best of this artist.
Commenting on the track Kenworthy says: “For me, this is the song about teamwork in a relationship. It’s a message of togetherness between two people during adversity and how you prop each other up when the other feels weak.”
Colouring recently announced news of a London headline show performing at St Pancras Old Church on Wednesday 4th October. Tickets are available here.
Following a run of early EPs released via Interscope Records that caught the attention of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart and Annie Mac, Colouring’s acclaimed debut album Wakewas released in May 2021. Melodically influenced by the 00s post-Britpop greats (early Coldplay, Elbow, Keane), whilst taking electronic and rhythmic cues from the likes of Radiohead and James Blake, the album saw Colouring finesse his kaleidoscopic beat-driven dream-pop on blissful tracks such as “Fading” and “Beautiful Life”.
Colouring’s upcoming second album is his most personal and compelling work to date and will be released via Bella Union in early 2024. More details will be revealed soon.
