With a raft of influences, Colour Me Wednesday’s brand of upbeat and punchy pop punk/ indie rock will strike a chord with many. A decent and catchy start with Sunriser before Boyfriend’s Car really shows off the excellent vocals capabilities of the band.

This is music that is light and summer-like, the kind that you could enjoy sitting in the sun with a nice glass of your favourite beverage. While a lot of the time the album does lean towards a more pop sound when rocking it up, Colour Me Wednesday become one of the most exciting bands in the UK.

Heather’s Left for Dead is an ear-pleasing and guitar heavy tune, Disown will get the foot-tapping and the head nodding along while Tinfoil has an almost ska bounce to its rhythm.

All quality tracks on an album that you can’t help but enjoy. It’s with a bit of sadness that it comes to an end with a double header of both sweet melody with Take What You Want (And Then Leave) and darker soft rock with Not My Turf.

A very satisfying finish.
