‘A rich sense of sonics, with those jazz flourishes building into something beautiful, but still abstract’ (Clash Magazine)
sky coloured is a fascinating new addition to the London alternative pop scene. Led by singer and songwriter Anthony T Jackson, the act released a 6-track EP, in the small hours, in 2018, featuring a roster of talented London musicians, including jazz trumpeter Emma-Jean Thackray and bassist Matt Gedrych. The record merges a classical sensibility with jazz harmony and a pointed, melancholy lyricism that’s attracted praise from the likes of Clash and The Quietus.
They followed this up with two atmospheric covers released for Mental Health Awareness Week 2019: John Martyn’s ‘Solid Air’ and Nick Drake’s ‘Pink Moon’, in association with the Mental Health Foundation, and unveiled a new synth-driven single ‘Desire’, in December 2019. They will be on tour in the UK with Mock Deer in March and April 2020.
