Shaker 05:27
Your beauty reigns supreme With a little less faith No more Silent breath I’m not wise I just speak, slowly I’m not inclined to let go This mountain looks So clean Head for the top Don’t let’s get caught in the crossfire I’m not wise I just speak, slowly Your eyes are in my dreams I’m asleep at the wheel My bags packed with sulphur and lies There’s no heats left to steal Pull tight my laces The brick road is yellow and blood stained Pick through my bag full of faces Lay down in the grass And pretend I’m not wise I just speak, slowly I’m not inclined to let go

about

Introducing 'Shaker', the new single from the UK's InTechnicolour.

InTechnicolour land somewhere between the slack desert-groove of Kyuss and Karma to Burn. However, their influences don't end there, as their penchant for combining simple yet deeply satisfying riffs with a dynamic vocal style calls to mind the sounds of Baroness, Gojira and Mastodon through to Queens Of The Stone Age and Drenge.

Their combination of haunting, powerful vocals, suspenseful, progressive clean sections and anthemic, unforgettable choruses have marked InTechnicolour out as ones to watch.

"Shaker" sees lead singer Tobie Anderson upping the intensity of his drawling, opiated vocals for a stealthy beast of a tune, on which the exuberant guitar chops of Dave Jackson and Elliot Tatler shred through a desert-influenced cyclone of riffs, propelled by the rhythm section juggernaut that is Vlad Matveikov (bass) and Mark Roberts (drums).

Anderson's bracing vocals convey a thoughtful and topical lyrical theme that grew from being, in his own words, "stupidly preoccupied with the idea of 'Hypernormalisation'".

He elaborates: "It's a song about thinking you're fooling people, pretending to be something you're not, and at the same time fooling no-one into thinking your mask is real. Everything we hear and see and read is so coached and manipulated, and we are all completely aware this is going on but still we consume the words of the 'wise'… I think that's where the ideas in this song were born, from this feeling that the more we coach and the more we control, the bigger the echo chamber becomes. Trust, I believe, is one of life's keys to happiness, and how can we trust anything when we are constantly being fed an edited, Instagram filtered existence?"
