COLIC is the lo-fi-gaze duo of Jimmy Turner and Meghann Dyke recently relocated from Charlotte to San Diego, both, in the USA.
Sallow melodies thread across the room as though ashamed to make an entrance as COLIC deliver music of the browbeaten realities of the 99% who are expected to aspire to their ‘betters’. Inside the fluctuating gait lies a steely resistance that gives the material its mettle which camouflaged by the rubbery texture will spike a shank into the unwary.
One can’t but draw reference to Winston Smith and Julia to extract the juices of the music as the trysts of inter-woven layering become ever more brazen the more that is heard and one is only searching for the LP named Room 101 to reach the anticipated inevitable conclusion. With some fortune COLIC have escaped the outer-reaches of the KKK in North Carolina and now find themselves ensconced outside WASP territory and safely landed in the relative sanctuary of the State of California and the listener can imagine a less toxic ending to 1984 in an environment in which they can flourish.
I look forward to discovering more of COLIC, who despite having only been in existence for less than six months have managed to release twice that many tracks – all of which are available on bandcamp.
