Colour Haze- We are (Elektrohasch EH012)
Side B starts off with Material Drive. It is an acoustic guitar track and with an almost western theme at times. Jan’s keyboards are most prominent on this track compared to the rest of the album. No one would think this was Colour Haze if you took the vocal away. Wow… I’m with You stays in the melodic realm and reminds me of Motorpsycho the way they build the track and the dynamics. Be with Me features some flute and has a great bass and drum groove. The whole band really comes together on this one. I could see this one where they could really take this too cool places live if they are willing to take the chance!! I should also mention Julia adds some vocals on this mostly instrumental track. Fruede III ends the record and starts with Jan laying down the keyboard line that the rest of the song develops from and he also gets to end the track. Another giant step for Colour Haze towards a more accecible sound but not losing their core. Ballsy….
