The April Fools Childrenhood – Low Colour (Independent)

Pop music tends to side thematically with the victims of love – the jilted, rejected and lost. On Low Colour, Vancouver musician David Cowling (working under the spliced-together pseudonym The April Fools Childrenhood) suggests listeners feel things from the side of the rejector; and damn if it isn’t very dark and sad over there. “Never Alone” and “Miss Resentment” get to the point here with sheaths of shivering reverb, ghost-y vocals and jarring moments of synth. Don’t leave Low Colour on in the background; take the time to let these five tracks sink in and feel the rumination in all its gloomy glory.
