“For once in your life just breathe and let go”
After the release of their self-titled debut album in 2018 and their highly successful cover of 5 Seconds of Summer’s ‘Youngblood’ Melbourne’s Colour and Shade are back. The boys have been busy working on a new sound and if their new single ‘Therapy’ is anything to go by we are in for a treat.
This is a song with an important message behind it. Even though it is based on a relationship breakdown the underlying message is so very important. Of not being afraid to ask for or offer someone help when needed.
This song is about trying to help someone confront issues in their life. Things that make them think lesser of them self. The video clip puts forth the idea of a relationship that breaks down due to cheating/seeking affirmation that they have worth (but in one way, physically). And the partner not wanting to break up but work through this, seeing value in their partner and seeing value in the relationship. But ultimately in the end it doesn’t work, and the relationship does break up.
‘Therapy’ is a song that I think most people can relate to at some stage in their life. Instrumentally ‘Therapy’ takes you on an emotional ride starting with a whimsical intro, that quickly turns into an angrier, heavier blast before the melodic pleading chorus kicks in. This only adds to enhance the lyrical content. Tim Greenwood’s poignant vocals on this song grab you from the first note , Zak’s angry raw vocals only adds a full blown punch to this emotional ride. By the time the breakdown hits I’m so caught up in the moment that ‘Therapy’ hit’s home hard. I’m loving the new direction that Colour and Shade have taken and am keen to hear more from the boys.
