Artist: The Colleagues
Label: Shiny Happy Records (Indonesia) / Dufflecoat Records (UK), 2013
Bandung is one of Indonesian cities which never lacks of good musician or band. One of them is The Colleagues, an indie-pop band that released their debut EP called 'The Sweet Simple Colours'. This EP contains of six easy-listening, yet colourful tracks. This EP is opened and closed by a poem: 'Perfect Utopia' as intro, and 'Rain' as outro. Between them, they have four songs you can enjoy easily. The lyrics are about experience of life, covered up with sweet melodies.
The song called 'Sweet Old Memory' is interesting. It is started with a slow tempo but suddenly turned up faster in the middle. This is a fun album. Actually I do not have a lot of words to describe this album, because they have described it perfectly only by four words. Those words, you can see it in their EP title.
You can follow them on twitter or listen to their songs in soundcloud
