Letters And Colours

Letters & Colours is a British new wave group from the North of England who become known for their combination of early eighties new wave and disco beats. They gained recognition along with the New Yorkshire and Nu Rave scenes, and groups such as Bloc Party, Interpol (band), Editors and The Departure. They list The Cure, Depeche Mode and The Smiths as influences and gained comparisons to such groups, as well as Joy Division, Echo & the Bunnymen, Bauhaus (band), Artery (post-punk band) and Comsat Angels. Letters & Colours combined a heavy, repetitive rhythm section with lush, melodic guitar and haunting vocals. This created a bleak sound with a danceable quality, often referred to as Noir Pop. The band formed in 2003 as a two piece, before extending the line up to four members; ultimately splitting up in August 2007.

Famous quotes containing the words colours and/or letters:

    My faith is the grand drama of my life. I’m a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colours for those who see none.
    Olivier Messiaen (1908–1992)

    A man who publishes his letters becomes a nudist—nothing shields him from the world’s gaze except his bare skin. A writer, writing away, can always fix himself up to make himself more presentable, but a man who has written a letter is stuck with it for all time.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)
