Every member of C O L T S has their own story to tell. In coming together from their diverse musical backgrounds, the group are embarking on an epic sonic journey together, drawing on each other’s experiences and strengths to create something truly special.
January is a rhythmic, energetic, and atmospheric number combining elements of dream-pop with indie-rock to create a beautiful wall of sound. The hyperemotional tune will break down your emotional guards, allowing all your thoughts and feelings flood out.
The video for January captivates you in a charm like fashion so you can’t look away. Its simple yet powerful message is conveyed so purely that it hits right in the heartstrings.
Visually, C O L T S convey the power, both good and evil, that words hold over us, and how support and positivity can be a prevailing force. It also depicts the damage that negativity and slanders have on us, further reiterating the significance of our words.
January is the first instalment of their twelve-part Calendar Collective series, with each instalment pairing a poem with a month of the year.
