New album to be released in February 2020

We’re very pleased to announce our 3rd album will be released in February 2020, again with the fantastic On The Corner Records.

Marking a transition to a slightly smaller band line-up, it is at heart a very personal album about coping with grief and the aftermath of loss, with the realisation that grief does not exist without love.

Previews and pre-orders are up on bandcamp – we hope the music connects with you.

Love this narrative interpretation of The Search – go to the original post to see the full story!

Ban Ban Ton Ton

Collocutor`s music tells tales. The band`s debut, Instead, had the vibe of Tom Waits running with Rain Dogs and Beats through Sondheim and Bernstein`s gangland Westside. Of Nelson Algren and Hubert Selby Jr.`s NYC. Junk and Tra La La. Late night rapping with Kerouac and Cassady, high on Benzedrine and Tea. Poetry and all that Jazz. The artwork to their sophomore release, The Search, also inspires imagined narratives. With graphics that hark back to the heyday of Straight No Chaser. When Jazz meant everything new. Where a bright collage of patterns and geometrics describe mountains and rivers. Reflect a super red sun in orange and purple. Demark a citadel. Towers and minarets. Watched over by all-seeing eyes. Our hosts, the players, wrapped in magical, psychedelic cloaks. Given this colourful landscape, this time out perhaps the story Collocutor aim to spin is more One Thousand and One Nights
