THE LOW-DOWN Windswept gui­tar pop-rock has a fine lin­eage but has been out of favour for a good while now. Films of Colour give it a fresh lick of paint and turn the tune­ful melan­cho­lia and poignancy up to 11. Com­mend­ably not feel­ing the need to rethread the usual in­flu­ences (Vel­vet Un­der­ground, Iggy and The Stooges etc), there’s a bright­ness of sound here that could be the missing link be­tween A-Ha and Echo and the Bun­ny­men. This isn’t mu­sic made for the in­die ghetto – there’s a sprawl­ing am­bi­tion at play here and if they can get a few sin­gles away they will be un­stop­pable.
