Melbourne alternative rock trio Colourburn make their debut with grungey new single Star, leading the way towards their new EP, Compromise In Colour‘, out Friday November 24.

Drawing on influences from the likes of Movements, Stand Atlantic and Holding Absence, a fresh-faced Colourburn arrive on the scene bringing emo energy and post-punk grit to the forefront. New song Star explores love and loss and the complex emotions that surround the process of a break up.

The band explain that the song is about “struggling to find one’s place in a changing relationship and the difficulty of letting go of something that once meant so much”.

Colourburn welcomed Christopher Vernon (Bloom, Belle Haven, Tapestry) to the team to produce, mix and master and joined forced with Martin Wood of Int Digital (Void Of Vision, The Last Martyr) for video and visuals. Streaming via BVTV on YouTube, the Star video clip visualises an intimate and impassioned performance of the single alongside moments of quiet introspection. Watch here.

The ‘Compromise In Colour’ EP is an encapsulation of creative exploration, diving into a diverse range of concepts and themes across the five tracks that make up the collection. “We didn’t really go for a single pointed direction, we just went with what felt right,” tells the band. “The meanings behind each song vary from heartbreak to feeling out of place.”

Forming while in the throes of the pandemic in 2020, Colourburn is Jordyn Briggs (vocals), Jack Gray (bass) and Josh McIntosh (guitar). The three-piece built their musical foundations playing in previous projects and connected over shared mutual interests to form Colourburn.

A cathartic process for founding guitarist Josh, the ‘Compromise In Colour’ EP spawned from a place of rediscovery, where the love of rock and alternative music powered a passion to create and connect. Beginning with riffs that had long been stored as notes and voice memos from years before, Josh rejuvenated, polished and collaborated with Jack and Jordyn to complete their debut EP.

Taking their time to craft a collection of work that fully encapsulates the bands identity, the trio have created a five-track extended release that’s set to appeal to fans of punk rock power with alt-pop sensibility.

Star is available now and streaming everywhere. The ‘Compromise In Colour’  EP will be available everywhere Friday November 24.
