Matthew de Zoete is a musician from Hamilton, ON, who plays under the name Colour Film. THe just I launched his new single ‘Open Road’ featuring Caroline Brooks of the Good Lovelies.
"Since 2006, I have released four albums and toured throughout North America and Europe, sharing the stage with acts such as Serena Ryder, Great Lake Swimmers, and Whitehorse and performing at festivals including North by Northeast, Canadian Music Week, JUNOfest, and Stukafest (Netherlands).
The song was inspired by a bike ride I took with my wife and two young daughters in the countryside one evening. At one point, they were up ahead of me a little way and I caught a glimpse of them biking with a stretch of open trail curving off into the distance in front of them. I was struck by the idea of a person you love being an open road - taking you places inside yourself, opening possibilities, and shaping your path into the future. This thought and the mental snapshot of my family stuck with me, so I wrote the song the next day. The rhythm and melody remind me of biking with them, and we shot the video on the same stretch of trail where the song was inspired."
“Open Road” was produced by Les Cooper and recorded in Toronto.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
