Legs' Catchy, Woozy "Two Colours" (Premiere)

By Jonah Wolf

Oakland's Legs plays simple jangle-pop with a steady midtempo chug and a strong sense of melody that opens up after repeated listens. (The band attributes some inspiration to member Matt Bullimore's youth in Christchurch, New Zealand, where he absorbed the local hits released by Flying Nun and Creation Records.) Their video for "Two Colours," featuring guest singer Amelia Adams, starts slow but builds to an undeniable three-chord hook as flurries of confetti fall.

Legs' Pass the Ringo is out April 23 on Loglady Records.
