Bands To Watch #75: Colin MacIntyre

Colin MacIntyreIt’s not often that I get excited by new pop or indie bands but when Colin MacIntyre (formerly of Mull Historical Soiety) puts the two together it is hard not to love it. The new song  “You’re a Star” was what got me to listen to Colin and the track is destined for the big time.  It is also the tune that gets the new album “The Water” off to a great explosive start.

The Water will surely see Colin get the recognition that his music and pure talent deserves. All the tracks on the album have a chirpy pop feel but with a good indie tempo. This makes for a consistently good record but the big hooks, bass lines and guitars ooze with quality and professionalism to give it the edge.

Now I was never such a big fan of Mull Historical Society as it was simply to odd for me and this, to an extent, put me off wanting to listen to Colin but I’m glad I did as the difference is unrecognisable from his former band. There is a more inspiring aspect to Colin and being his solo career, you see all the talent he has to offer – and there is a lot.

He’s not just a one hit wonder either with plenty of variety. Singles could come from any of the material he has produced especially “Future Gods and Past Kings” while the track “Camelot Revisited” which is a bit more mellow displays the range of skills that Colin has iin his armoury. Yet another artist who has a big year ahead of them.
