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 letters and, colours and/or letters:

    Certainly, young children can begin to practice making letters and numbers and solving problems, but this should be done without workbooks. Young children need to learn initiative, autonomy, industry, and competence before they learn that answers can be right or wrong.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    The sounding cataract
    Haunted me like a passion: the tall rock,
    The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood,
    Their colours and their forms, were then to me
    An appetite: a feeling and a love,
    That had no need of a remoter charm,
    By thought supplied, or any interest
    Unborrowed from the eye.—
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    I have a vast deal to say, and shall give all this morning to my pen. As to my plan of writing every evening the adventures of the day, I find it impracticable; for the diversions here are so very late, that if I begin my letters after them, I could not go to bed at all.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)
