Having previously blown us away with the visceral energy of ‘Break Her’, Brixton’s Coltana have now announced their debut EP.
Taken from the EP is frenzied new single ‘Bitter Sweet’. Propelled by whirring hooks and front-woman Cat’s impassioned spoken word vocals, it races with a thrashing energy and the band’s trademark refreshing brutal honesty. Building to a raging climax complete with slick riffs, it’s a riotous blast of sound that’ll hit your ears with its defiant ferocious force.
Of the track, Cat explains:
“‘Bitter Sweet’ has all the ingredients that Coltana like to cook with. Light and heavy dynamics, spoken word-esq vocals followed by sing along choruses and a guitar solo thrown in for good measure. This song packs a punch but manages to push and pull the listener in the right direction at every juncture. Go Listen!”
