Acclaimed Australian indie-dance trio Crooked Colours have tapped RIAA platinum certified Australian rapper Masked Wolf and viral rap sensation Jasiah for their new track ‘Light Year (Feat. Masked Wolf & Jasiah),‘ available now HERE. The track is accompanied by an official video starring Crooked Colours, Masked Wolf and Jasiah, streaming now HERE.
“We love that we are in a position to write music that is influenced by so many different genres without feeling like a departure from our sound,” says Crooked Colours’Leon Debaughn. “I think that keeps it really fresh and exciting for us. We had this beat and new instantly Masked Wolf would be a perfect fit. We connected with Jasiah and he added so much energy to the track. The song encapsulates the feeling of life moving too fast and looking forward rather than being present and living in the moment.”
Masked Wolf adds “My manager sent me a beat from Crooked Colours and within 1 hour I had a chorus and verse sent back to them. It’s just one of those feel good songs no matter where you are you can plug in some headphones and be in a world of happiness listening to it.”
Crooked Colours have quickly earned applause as one of Australia’s hottest electronic acts, racking up over 200M worldwide streams thus far with show-stealing festival performances around the globe and such increasingly popular tracks as ‘No Sleep,’ ‘Falling,’ ‘Love Language,’ and of course, their 2017 breakthrough smash, ‘Flow.’ Hailed by EDM.com for their “harmonious blend of indie, house, and pop,” the Fremantle, Western Australia-based trio – Phil Slabber (vocals, guitar, production), Leon Debaughn (keys, production), and Liam Merrett-Park (drums) – fuse delicate acoustic instrumentation, evocative vocals, upbeat lyricism, and dancefloor-ready synth transmissions to create a dynamic, shape-shifting sound all their own. Having earned worldwide critical applause and an ever-growing fan following, Crooked Colours spent much of last year’s lockdown at home in Fremantle, hard at work crafting their eagerly awaited third studio album.
Crooked Colours’ new single ‘Light Year (feat. Masked Wolf & Jasiah)’ is out now on Sweat It Out, and Atlantic Records.
