Colourshop is an Italian rooted, London based duo of brothers that already released one album and two EPs. Their newest release is a 5 track EP called 3PM. It comes across fresh and easy like a summer breeze. Their music is what I'd call singer songwriter pop of the finest. It's easy listening, it's light and bright and has nothing of the funereal atmosphere that sometimes clings to singer songwriter music.

At the same time, their lyrics don't lack depth or aspiration. The little waltz "My World" states "When you look at things from a distance, everything makes more sense I've been told by a friend who lives in my head". This song refers to all the things that we are occupied with to manage our lives and that we shouldn't rely on our efforts' results, as everything can change. The only thing that will always stay is what is in our heads: "I will never be without you cause you're in my soul, you're my world".

I find this sweet and true and can relate to it very well. Their vocals harmonize extremely well as often the case with siblings. They sound bright and clear and cheerful without a shallow note to it: Perfect for a summer night.
