Gang Colours To Repel Ghosts (Troy Gunner Remix)

In case you missed it, I was off the radar this past week and playing catch up now. I come back to see endless posts on Gang Colours new single, “To Repel Ghosts”. Which just confused the hell out of me. Gang Colours album was available to stream in it’s entirety for months…. I wrote about Will Ozanne’s debut EP The Keychain Collection as well as the stand out tracks “To Repel Ghosts” and “Tissues & Fivers” back in February…when his album dropped.

Then I read “To Repel Ghosts” is part of some longevity effort by Brownswood Recordings that comes complete with swagged out remixes by three seriously hawt producers. Apparently Troy Gunner was allowed to blow his load prematurely as his superbly droned out, house influenced version of the original has already decorated the faces of several electronic devoted blogs over the past 24 hours. Guess he popped my remix cherry too.

I’m beyond pumped for this single + remixes, also including contributions by George Fitzgerald and Stray to drop. Mark your calendars for 5/28/12 and keep checking the Brownswood camp cuz pre-order is like asking for sex before dinner, it’s just not gonna happen.

Gang Colours To Repel Ghosts + Tissues & Fivers + Album Stream

I’ve been listening to Gang Colours debut album The Keychain Collection a lot the past few weeks. In what I’m going to call slurred electro-soul, Gang Colours experiments with a range of instruments and levels, from heavy billowing bass, to piano keys than span several octaves, and lots of magnetic dancing bit and pieces in between. The smoky, roughness of Will Ozanne’s vocals tell a story that with every song continues to unfold and become more clear. 

No doubt, “On Compton Bay” and “Fancy Restaurant” are the stand out singles on The Keychain Collection. So, I wanted to highlight a couple other tracks I really dug after spending some time with this record. “To Repel Ghosts” is this super smooth, loungey track that makes you instantly feel cool. This track is also your introduction to Ozanne’s passion. It’s as if every lyric carries so much weight that it takes all of this breath to get it out, and at the same time these words just roll of his lips and float off into the ether like they had been there the entire time. “Pebble Dash” is this beautifully quirky track, that’s on the lighter side and acts as that puzzle piece that connects the album together and keeps it from feeling like a funeral before you get to “Fancy Restaurant.” Finally, “Tissues & Fivers” is one of the sickest four minute interludes you will ever hear. It’s pretty dark, has these weird Zack Morris phone samples that somehow work perfectly, coupled with moments of electrifying current running through a keyboard. Finally, once you hit “Fancy Restaurant,” “On Compton Bay” and the closing track, “Rollos Ivory Tale,” you get a glimpse of Will’s playful side in which the heart and soul of his music is illuminated, and you realize it’s not so much a pain in his voice, but more of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow catharsis he is expressing. 

This album is a really interesting first offering that I keep coming back to, like a giant puzzle taking over your kitchen table that you have been working on for months and still have yet to finish, but have enjoyed every minute of putting it together.
