New Video Premiere: Days Are Done – Colours

Days Are Done, made up of singer-songwriter Emmy Kay and BAFTA winning TV & film composer Adam Lewis, recently dropped their wonderful new single Colours, and we’re delighted to bring you the premiere of the accompanying visuals

Take a watch of their video, shot in Kingston-upon-Thames (where we’re the band are based ) on one camera in just a few hours…

Colours was recorded in one sensational take, vocals (together) & guitar. Talking about the track, the duo state: ‘It’s actually the first take from the studio session. Late last year we played a resurrected version of Kingston’s famous Folk Barge for a local charity called Creative Youth. The original barge was played by people like Nick Drake, John Martyn, Eric Clapton back in the 60’s. We’d finished demoing for the EP and we were sat taking about the experience, it was maybe 1am and the song just came out. You can definitely hear the Folk Barge influence. Emmy was going through a painful personal experience too so the song’s like therapy’

Kingston has an important musical heritage & its still got a very buzzy music scene, especially with Banquet records, who bring a lot of great music to Kingston. Unfortunately there’s a lot of opposition that too – theatre & art galleries are seen as culturally important but music’s often not. So much like the song, and the band, there’s a lot of push and pull in Kingston. You can see the different sides to the town in the video and how much the duo love it there

With their rapidly growing fanbase now anticipating their next step, the duo return this Summer with their debut studio EP, Closer, which was produced and mixed by Sean Genockey at his Studio (Blackdog). To celebrate the release they’ve hit the festival circuit , playing Glastonbury last weekend and now Hebcelt, topping the bill! They will be on the acoustic stage at 8pm
