This spring, Oklahoma psych-rockers Colourmusic return with their new album, May You Marry Rich. Compared to 2011’s My ___ Is Pink, the forthcoming 12-track effort is a “darker affair” about “obsessing over mankind’s seemingly insatiable lust for pure happiness”, according to a press release.
“It’s about having the option to have anything you want, like a King, and asking whether that would make you happy”, frontman Ryan Hendrix elaborated. “It’s about happiness and a theory that we’re not wired to have contentment as our genetic disposition.”
For a taste of the new LP, get tangled up in the fuzzy antics of “Dreamgirl ’82”. Even at four minutes, the track is a sprawling and turbulent trip, its crunchy, chugging chaos a nearly unstoppable force. Check it out below.
May You Marry Rich is due out April 8th via Memphis Industries.
