Ahead of their highly anticipated second albumLangata, electronic dance trioCrooked Colourshave released another cut from the record,Hold On, out now. The simmering track follows previous hit singlesI’ll Be ThereandDo It Like You, and is another piece of the enigmatic puzzle that isLangata. The trio, consisting of membersPhilip Slabber,Leon De BaughnandLiam Merrett-Park, have revealed that the album will be out on May 17, with preorders available now. The group have also announced the tracklist for the record, available below. Tickets to the upcomingLangatanational tour are moving quickly, with a second Melbourne show being announced for May 26 after the first sold out within days, and shows added for Canberra, Wollongong and Newcastle. JoiningCrooked Colourson the headline dates will be fellowtriple jfavesNyxenandKayex.

Hold Onopens with a dreamy, swirling synthesiser, then blossoms into a hook-laden electronic dance pop jam, buoyed by percolating rhythms and sharp synthesisers. It feels like a love song, but there’s a darkness there; as Philip Slabber’s gentle vocal dives smartly in and out of the layers of the track, it’s impossible not to feel moved. Speaking about the track, Leon De Baughn says“I remember the idea for this track first came to me while I was driving home from the beach. We had just got back from touring in the US and getting back to our summer inspired this track. It started with the chords and the floating vocal line that ended up building into a club beat with the bouncing bass line.”

OnLangata,Crooked Colourshave created a new world; atmospheric beats, soft vocals, synths and guitars that move harmoniously throughout – it’s addictive bliss. SinglesI’ll Be There,Do It Like YouandHold Onare highlights, but there is so much more to this record –Never Dance Alonefeaturing the fabulousLadyhawkeis meditative, tender, and soft, whileI C Lightis deep and heavy. Written, recorded, and produced entirely byCrooked Colours, and mixed byTim WattsandDavid Wrench(Frank Ocean, The XX, Caribou, FKA twigs),Langatacontains multitudes and is a masterclass in the ecstatic simplicity of electronic dance music. Speaking about the album Philip Slabber says“Langata carries forward what we created with Vera while including what we learnt connects with fans while touring around the world. We’re incredibly excited to release this record and even more excited to perform it live.”

After taking Australia by storm with their ambitious and impressive new live show,Crooked Colourswill be heading overseas to perform at some of the hottest festivals in the world, includingBonnarooandFireflyfestivals, plus more. Thilled to be hitting the road,Liam Merrett-Parkenthuses,“The response to the tour so far has been crazy. We never thought we would be able to headline the Forum Theatre and now we’re doing two. Also, we’re very excited to be heading to New Zealand for our first ever headline tour there.”

Crooked Colourshave established themselves as one of the hottestrising acts with the debutVera. Now they are on track to become one of ourbiggest electronic exports with thissuperb sophomore release.
