The rising rock and pop-punk band One More Weekend reveals a new indie-rock hot single ‘Colourful Things’
Known for their punchy, irresistible brand of rock and pop-punk, Melbourne outfit One More Weekendare back with their second single for the year, exploring a newfound appetite for indie-rock in their latest track ‘Colourful Things’.
Following the release of tight-knit rock number ‘Talk’ earlier in the year with two sold-out shows and support from the likes of Triple M, The Faction, theMusic, Hysteria Mag, Punktuation, and more, it is clear that One More Weekend are continuing their upward trajectory as they expand their sound and defy their genres.
Heading in a different direction from their previous releases, ‘Colourful Things’ radiates with a light-hearted, upbeat indie-rock energy, boasting glorious guitar riffs and endearing, conversational vocals.
Sonically, ‘Colourful Things’ drips with sunlight and joy, layered with an easygoing beat and moreish guitars. The chorus brings an addictive lyrical hook, delivered with frontman Connor Dougan’s cheerful vocal tone and sunny harmonies. A vivid, riff-filled guitar solo after the second chorus leads to a slight tempo change, bringing forth a shadow of melancholy like a cloud moving across the sun, before the song’s beaming energy returns in full force.
Despite the positive warmth emanating from this track, lyrically ‘Colourful Things’ contains a serious underlying message about substance abuse and the effect this has on oneself and the people around them. Dougan explains further:
“‘Colourful Things’ comes from a place where someone becomes unaware that their actions are causing damage to themselves and everyone around them. By choosing to have fun and go wild constantly it’s hard to decipher what’s right and wrong when you yourself are altered by substance. I wrote this track with a positive tune because I feel that these problems are often masked by the short high.”
‘Colourful Things’ is out everywhere on July 2, and One More Weekend will be performing at their Single Launch on July 31. Before that though, they’ll be supporting Jordan Sweeto at Wrangler Studios (All Ages) on the 10th of July.
