Head over heels
Sorry Terry, you're thinking of us as Wolf and Dragons, this is just us as Forbidden Colours. So no Bob, This one was written, performed and video by us. Glad you like it. We'd like to thank you and everyone else who's commented on our tracks.
that video..the black and white images ..quite a morbid collection there...watching that visual makes the track more Gothic and dark. electro-frenzy by Andy and Mark...well done guys...vocals/lyrics by Bob...got some thoughtful and dark musing in here. well done guys! (A lot of video editing Bob...very enjoyable and puzzling assortment of stills...macabre...well done :)
Great "Gothy" feel to this...puts me in mind of the 80's....nah, defo not TfFs tho. Cool track. Something changed on this un then? New mix? K
Takes me right there to that moment in time and yet i'm standing here now.
It's always fun to be back in the eighties. A bit of early human league in there maybe. A sharp groovy riff and nice apocalyptic lyrics. Downloading now. Love Wednesday x
God damn!!! Nice vid too.
Listen a BIG CHEERS for all your comments much appreciated. Well this is a fine production, love the slightly Post Punk feel to it. A large vote from me, Peace ES
I also hear Joy Division here too , But also has a Touch of Cabaret Voltaire to my ears .... Dark , But liking the synths and the Bass is cool ..... Degs
Seems i forgot to vote back in April so have a Thumb now. Great track. Gibbo
Dark pop, and a very intense mix, those synth tones sound so rich. Vocal slightly buried just adds to the ominous ambience...well done!
Couple of great synth riffs in here. I too would like the vocal bringing out a little more, but great stuff regardless :)
Joy Division and Killing Joke are the vibes Im getting!! Loved them both!! The sounds you use remind me of a couple of bands that we backed in the early 90's, of Scottish origin too!! What a coincidence!!! Nice work once again guys!! The Scots have always had a strong music prescence, your tracks certainely have inhertated those excellent genes!!
The beginning here makes me think I'm listening to some unreleased stuff by U2. Love the punk influenced vocals. Great melody on the pads, kind of spooky, it's great! Epic stuff!
yeah this is very Joy Division, and superb for that, a great track.
Electro - Gothic is definitely an accurate description. Have you created a new genre? 80s vibe to me - the vocals particularly, Shame they are a tad low in the mix at times. Synth work is excellent and i really like the melody and lyrics of this very interesting composition. Brilliant stuff. Thumbs. James
Interesting stuff, great vocals and synth work. I like the way this track is arranged, it holds the listener nicely.
Really enjoyed this, nice synths throughout. It reminded me of Pop Will Eat Itself. Easy Thumbs !
I liked your description...Electro-Gothic ;) Lots of "end of the world" imagery in your lyrics...(promises laced with screams...scent of desolation...world is spinning "head over heels" towards... your music creates the prediction...nice edge ..Liked this one!
This is good,some great synths here with an amazing hook from about 1.12 that it fades out on,love that. Good vocal sound,quite low in the mix but that works well. Nice work.
I thought i was listening to Joy Division at the start, very very very nice track fellow celts. This one is getting played for a long time DEFO : )
We are currently concentrating on working with Wolf and Dragons, but we will be uploading more Forbidden Colours material soon. http://www.mp3unsigned.com/Wolf_and_Dragons. Forbidden Colours are a Swansea (South Wales, UK) based band who discovered synthesisers in 1979 and, after years of study have finally found the little button that turns them on. We are Mark Newton and Andy Jonah, a control freak and fat boy respectively. We have been influenced by many people, including our bank manager, the electricity board and a hypnotist named the amazing Mesmo. We would describe our music as having been written by us, musically, using some instruments in a style which is usually the complete opposite of what we started out to write, but which, nonetheless is surprisingly good. We hope one day to pioneer the practice of playing air-synths. We are possibly the only Welshmen in existence who can't sing (we were thrown out of the choir for shoving), but we're not that worried because the music is the thing. When not writing music we generally tend to stare off into space listening to whatever tunes our inner DJ's spin in our heads. Contrary to everything written here, we do take our music seriously. Biographies, on the other hand... Mark Newton: Vocals (well he calls them vocals), Vocoder, Lead guitar, Synthesisers, Samplers, Percussion Andy Jonah: Backing vocals, Vocoder, Bass guitar, Synthesisers, Samplers, Percussion (tea and welsh cakes) We are currently looking for a Swansea based vocalist, male, female, transgender or even hermaphrodite.
