ROYGBIV is the fourth EP by Australian psych / shoegaze band Flyying Colours, released in May 2015 by Shelflife Records.

Formed in 2011, Flyying Colours self-titled EP received a considerable amount of attention, which was then backed up by their explosive live shows, setting them well apart from others occupying Melbourne's fledgling shoegaze scene.

Flyying Colours return with a second EP of psychedelic pop textures tempered with sugar-rush melodies. Hailing from Melbourne, Flyying Colours weave smooth, tactile vocals with coarse textures with finely-crafted songwriting. 

They unashamedly display their influences on ROYGBIV - tone-bending My Bloody Valentine / Swervedriver guitars, ferocious bass hooks and the familiar soft hush of early 90s dueting vocals. Added to the mix is their own edgy, refreshing pop-mindedness, buoyed by the lush vocal interplay 

On "Running Late" guitars overlap, playing seemingly different melodies and rhythms, as the vocals float up from the ether of the background. Hearkening back to the 80s but also at once sounding thoroughly futuristic, there's finely-textured guitar loops and lo-fi delay used to get effect throughout the record. "Not Today" and "Leaks" share the same considerable style and skill: successfully channelling not just Kevin Shield's growling, bending, wall-of-sound guitars, but also Bilinda Butcher's cooing, unintelligible vocals. The album opener "I Don't Want To Let You Down" sports a rolling darkwave groove that's like Joy Division gone psychedelic. 

ROYGBIV is a snapshot of a band reaching for the heavens and finding themselves reflected in at all over the cosmos: a sign of greater things to come. 

Check out the tracks: “Running Late” and “Not Today”.
