Stoner rockers INTECHNICOLOUR have announced their new album Big Sleeper, due for release on 21st February 2020 via Big Scary Monsters.
Alongside the album announcement the band have released a double A-side single, ‘Miami Funk / Doomer’.
Vocalist Tobie Anderson comments:
“I am obsessed with documentaries, it’s essentially all I regularly consume (besides beer and weed). The lyrics for ‘Miami Funk’ came from watching docs that only ever seem to point a finger at a problem (or camera if you want to be literal). They don’t offer any solutions, they don’t offer any explanation, the journalist or filmmaker is just there, existing, watching the problem or subject as a passive bystander. I don’t believe this has always been the case and it’s not an accusation I would level at all documentary filmmakers, but there are certainly a large number who fit this shoe. So ‘Miami Funk’ is my remedial way of poking fun at this trend.”
“‘Doomer’ is about getting older,” he adds. “It’s about realising that I’m not eighteen anymore and in my weird mind, that means my time might be running out? If that makes any sense to ‘normal people’. It’s about feeling like I might be running out of time and making sure I have made the right choices and chosen to spend my life with the best people. To a certain extent, it’s also about a reluctance to get older, that weird feeling we all get, like my fingernails are being pried from my body as I try desperately to hold onto that concept of youth.”

Hailing from Brighton, InTechnicolour are a riffy, groovy, stoner-rock band with a knack for creating a colourful song or two. Formed in 2015 through a want to play loud music through slightly broken amps, the basis of the band was formed.
Comprised of members from the likes of Delta Sleep, LUO and Broker the quartet are a fully formed band of technically gifted musicians, cutting loose and playing music that’s about as far removed from their day jobs as it’s possible to get – and they are doing it better than a good portion of their contemporaries. Landing somewhere between the slack desert-groove of Kyuss and Karma to Burn, the band combine deeply satisfying riffs with a dynamic vocal style, which calls to mind the sounds of Baroness, Gojira and Mastodon.
The band have previously been quoted as saying that they “literally have nothing to say about themselves,” but with music this good, it’s highly likely that there’ll be plenty of others willing to do the talking for them.
InTechnicolour have previously toured across the UK and Europe with the likes of Physics House Band, Black Peaks, Polymath, Bitch Falcon and Haggard Cat. The band will conclude 2019 with Big Scary Monsters‘ Xmas Party, with a headline UK tour set for February 2020 in support of the album.
