South African Indie Alternatives THE COLOR BLEW are hard at work on their new album, so whilst you wait a bit longer for their new material, here is a Lyric Video for their track 'THE MAN' from their phenomenal sophomore album LIGHT SWITCH.

Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) shares that “The Man was written as a sardonic commentary on shallow sham pretenders who do seemingly good deeds for iniquitous reasons! They portray themselves as saviours, but in reality, they just cause more damage and destruction than any real good. In the end, the unfortunate folks they claim to be saving were better off without their pretend interventions!”

LYRICS

I KNEW THIS MAN
HE HAD A BIG PLAN
SO MANY PLANS
HE HELD IT IN HIS HANDS

I KNEW THIS MAN
HE WROTE HIS NAME IN THE SAND
HE POINTS TO THE SKY
AND THE SKY OPENED WIDE
SWALLOWED HIM WHOLE INSIDE

HELLO HELLO!
LISTEN TO THE THUNDER
GHETTO GHETTO!
DO YOU EVER WONDER?
SHADOW SHADOW!
DANCING IN THE SHADOWS
HELLO HELLO!
 
I KNEW THIS MAN
HE WROTE HIS NAME IN THE SAND
HE POINTS TO THE SKY
AND THE SKY OPENED WIDE
SWALLOWED HIM WHOLE INSIDE

HELLO HELLO
LISTEN TO THE THUNDER
GHETTO GHETTO!
DO YOU EVER WONDER?
SHADOW SHADOW!
DANCING IN THE SHADOWS
HELLO HELLO!
CAN YOU HEAR THE LAUGHTER?

I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!
I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!
I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!
I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!

I KNEW THIS MAN
HE HAD A BIG PLAN
SO MANY PLANS
HE HELD IT IN HIS HANDS

HELLO HELLO!
LISTEN TO THE THUNDER
GHETTO GHETTO!
DO YOU EVER WONDER?
SHADOW SHADOW!
DANCING IN THE SHADOWS
HELLO HELLO!
CAN YOU HEAR THE LAUGHTER?

I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!
I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!
I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!
I DON’T BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL!

 

ABOUT THE COLOR BLEW

TCB

Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) Marius Cronje (Bass Guitar) Timothy James (Lead Guitar) & Armando Santos (Drums)

The Color Blew represents depth and insight in a sea of over-produced, shallow, commercial music. We provide the “alternative” where talent and passion merge with meaning and sound - a place free from preconceived notions of how music should sound. We often find discerning audience members getting lost in moments of deep listening, mesmerised by the artful sound and impassioned performance, unaware of what is happening around them. We work hard in the studio, play hard on stage, and strive for consummate professionalism, no matter the occasion.

While The Color Blew has only been together since 2014, our combined years of band experience total over 65 years. We are a four-piece outfit consisting of Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) Marius Cronje (Bass Guitar) Timothy James (Lead Guitar) Armando Santos (Drums). We are based in the East Rand of Gauteng, where we rehearse, create, record and produce our music in our own studio located in Springs.

Asking us to categorise our sound into one sub-genre of rock music would be like asking a painter to use only one colour of paint. Our music could be broadly considered “Alternative Rock”, but there are many more nuances. Our core material is heavily coloured by grunge and punk and can be found on our debut album: THE CANVAS (2018). Our newer music brings in the bright hues of jazz and African beats, blended with meaningful lyrics. Our newer music brings in the bright hues of jazz and African beats, blended with meaningful lyrics. This is evident from our sophomore release LIGHT SWITCH (2019).

All in all, we strive to create an evolving, distinctive sound on the vast canvas of South African music!
