Noughties By Nature #39: Colour - Unicorns

Having split up earlier this year, there's been there's inevitably been a fair bit of eulogising about Colour's untouchable brilliance in recent months. In my opinion their back catalogue was patchy at best, but this song (along with a couple of others i could almost as easily have chosen) is as perfect a pop song as you could hope for. Blissfully catchy lyrics that pass in an instant and hooks that are as fleeting as Colour's career (proportionally, anyway) - but the song is always pulling you back in time for the next one. This is the kind of tune you'll leave on loop for hours once it clicks.
