Genre-bending trio 5 Billion in Diamonds celebrate the beauty of life and love in a vibrant conversation with the sun on “I Colour You In,” led by lush keyboards infused with layers of horns and flutes for an 80s-tinged vibe.
With contemplative lyrics exploring the beginning and end of everything in life, the track shines as a dream pop number that leaves us anticipating their forthcoming LP Divine Accidents. The groovy instrumentation allows ethereal, slow-burn vocals to shine through, weaving a meditative feel around us.
Delving into the lyrics of the track, Butch Vig recalled breathing life into the hypnotic offering on a hazy Sunday afternoon, saying: “As many bottles of vino were being consumed, Helen wrote the lyrics while we all sang together working out the arrangement.”
Formed by Butch Vig, Andy Jenks, and DJ James Grillo, 5 Billion in Diamonds have built a reputation for expansive, cinematic soundscapes, which they once again capture with “I Colour You In,” set to extend their dazzling modes of sonic escapism into their upcoming body of work.
