Recorded in Stockholm and Omaha, In Colour comes from no one region but from the dimension of Pop, and recalls the bittersweet, three-minute symphonies of Dusty Springfield, Cat Power, the Shangri-Las and the Jesus and Mary Chain. The eight-piece is just as awesome onstage, where they are both shambolic and beautiful.
