The Kolour Kult is a duo from Providence, Rhode Island, a city known more for it’s noise and hardcore scene than synth-pop music. The opening line of the very Pet Shop Boys-esque first track, “Sentimentality Fails” proclaims “I may seem too sentimental, but I’ve grown fond of you“, which is exactly how I feel about that decade.
They have taken an 80’s style and given it an update while staying true to the original sound. The fourth song, “Window” which is my favorite, starts out with a drum beat that sounds like the it came straight from Love and Rockets’ “So Alive“, with an oddly familiar “whoa-oh-oh” chorus that will stick in your head. So, go ahead and grab the free 5 song EP from their Bandcamp!
