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.

    American thinking, when it concerns itself with beautiful letters as when it concerns itself with religious dogma or political theory, is extraordinarily timid and superficial ... [I]t evades the genuinely serious problems of art and life as if they were stringently taboo ... [T]he outward virtues it undoubtedly shows are always the virtues, not of profundity, not of courage, not of originality, but merely those of an emasculated and often very trashy dilettantism.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
