7 September 2019
20 years ago today, on 7 September 1999, British mega UFO obsessed supersonic rockers MUSE released their debut album SHOWBIZZ. It’s really amazing how this mind and soul-stirring first longplayer was actually the predetermined blueprint for all they achieved over two decades later. From bombastic and grandiloquent musical extravaganza to sweet and tenderhearted balladry. It made them superstars in the UK and Europe!
ALL MUSIC wrote: “The musical touchstone for the British trio Muse is obviously Radiohead
and that fact is crystal clear from the smoldering opening cut, “Sunburn.” Their John Leckie-produced debut, Showbiz, is strong on angst-filled vocals, esoteric lyrics, and dramatic shifts
in sonic dynamics.” Full review here

Band: COLOR PALETTE
Who: “An Indie/Electro/Rock band from Washington, DC. Since their first release this quintet has garnered hundreds of press hits worldwide. ‘Color Palette’ released their debut full-length album, ‘Vaporwave’, in 2016 and have shared bills with notable artists: Charli XCX, The Naked and Famous, Mother Mother, Day Wave, Yumi Zouma, Mr Little Jeans, The Kickback, and Spirit Animal. Their second album will be released in 2019. “
Track: SUNBURN – new single from second album, out in 2019
Score: Color Palette definitely masters the art of making layers of guitars and synths
sound like tender-hearted fantasies that have a sunlit impact on your imagination.
They connect dream pop melodies with shoegaze patterns in a swirling way like the
British veteran rockers Slowdive and Ride just did throughout their entire careers.
The Washington D.C. quintet’s electrical resonance is both puissant and subtile and
in the end Sunburn looks and sounds like a sonic rainbow. Several colors, several
moods. Catch the relaxing vibes right here…
