Album Review: Covet - Technicolor



"Covet create an energy unlike anything else with their emotion-led unspoken storytelling."


“There are so many textures and types of songs that it’s a new direction for us,” vocalist-and-guitarist Yvette Young says of 'Technicolor'; Covet's second studio album.


The US instrumental rock trio - completed by David Adamiak and Forrest Rice - mixed every shade of the rainbow into this chromatic record that harnesses darkness and light.


Covet create an energy unlike anything else with their emotion-led unspoken storytelling.


The sun feels like it's breaking through the clouds on mood-lifting opener, 'good morning', whilst the intricate guitar-playing is present throughout the 10-track LP.


'parachute' features sparing vocals from Yvette, and the words are ever more evocative for it.


She sings: "You and I were standing outside the house where this all started "Love was not enough, but I know we'll make it through "You don't have to believe me, you don't have to say you will "These days are far and few between, and I don't want to waste them

"Someday you will realise you don't need it anymore Someday you will realise you don't need it anymore."



The adroit blending of rhythms throughout really attracts attention, especially on lead single 'nero'.


Standout track 'odessa' is particularly evoking with the spellbinding use of violin.


Covet ensure every instrument serves a purpose on this exhilarating collection of thought-provoking musical imagery.
