As the days are getting longer and warmer, and your SXSW hangover is more-or-less gone that can only mean that spring is here! And so is a new Brilliant Colors song! “I Was Born a Fantasist” was recently dropped by the San Francisco band, signed to Slumberland Records. As the ladies prep for a slew of shows in the U.K. next month, they will also be playing at the Rickshaw Stop on Tuesday with Veronica Falls and Golden Grrrls.
Released in 2009, Brilliant Colors’s debut, Introducing, was lauded as an almost-impeccable album of indie pop with a slightly-heavy twist. That especially garage rock flourish likely emerged while recording with San Francisco’s one and only garage rock darling, Ty Segall. Their most recent album, 2011’s Again and Again was full of catchy lyrics and a definitive step towards perfecting their sound. The new one-off single is just as infectious.
“I Was Born a Fantasist” is fun and catchy, with that driving 60’s guitar and even a backing whistle track! Listen to the track below.
