“A Thousand Colours”

Penny Arcade

Bit of an odd day for yours truly. We’re locked in a perpetual state of gorm. Wintered out, if you will – which is basically happy-chappy speak for “we hardly slept a wink last night”. Granted, as a matter of course, we have been duly informed by several family members, friends and/or colleagues, that there is the slight possibility that we are taking shit too seriously at the moment and generally need to give it a rest for a bit. And we will; not least of all to spare us another lecture from those with an alarming degree of general concern for our mental and physical well-being, but also because, like, Christmas is nearly here and we’re going to be shutting up shop for a week or three (although we wonder how long we really can sit still for – wish us luck). As far as Christmas spirit goes, Track Of The Day’s don’t come in much more appropriate form than four-piece London people Penny Arcade. We have spent the last 10 minutes or so trying to work out if this is a novated nomenclature for the group formally known as The Penny Arcade Quartet, which we have concluded just now that it is indeed, mainly because we have about 3 minutes to complete this blog post. An interesting point to note is that these guys formed around a year ago where they were found singing Christmas carols for change and/or booze in a Notting Hill pub, subsequently getting signed up to something by someone. A more relevant point to note is what we reckon A Thousand Colours sounds like, and seeing as we’re really against the clock here, we surmise that if you dig The White Album, Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons and those beautiful men in Racing Glaciers, you may well appreciate this.
