PREMIERE: I AM WILLOW - 'Colourless' (Single)
I AM WILLOW decides to live life on her own terms in brand new single, 'Colourless'.
'Colourless' opens with bare piano notes (whose bones are noticeable throughout the track), providing a 90s conscious hip hop feel to the song, before delving into I AM WILLOW's signature yet subtle, electronic experimentation and penchant for cinematic aesthetics. With each sleek new track, I AM WILLOW reveals not only a new side to her artistry, but offers exploration into who she is as a person and 'Colourless' is arguably her most self-examining track to date.
For me, there's more of a solid, urban feel to the influences behind 'Colourless' than any of I AM WILLOW's previous tracks, although the song is rich with culture and authenticity, still carrying an ethereal chill in parts,before bringing the vibrant taste of eastern influences to the track's close.
Through 'Colourless' I AM WILLOW has found substance in both self-acceptance and self-actualization. This is the perfect reminder for us all to stay true to our own special hues.
