Soulful and abstract, the sophomore LP from Tirzah finds her reflecting on motherhood, the intimacies of friendship and family and the movement between moments in life. Opening with warped vocals that descend into Klangers-like whistles on the opening title track, ‘Colourgrade’ begins like many first moments with curiosity but little discernible structure. Soon that structure arrives as ‘Tectonic’ picks up a Trip-Hop beat and a lingering, low bass line before being joined by Tirzah’s lyrical, staccato cadence. It’s a visceral album filled with Dub bass, crisp beats, occasional shots of fractured Sci-Fi synth texture, and smooth, effortless but carefully paced vocal melodies that hang, linger and imprint themselves on and in space. Pulling from Trip-Hop, Ambient, Minimalism, and Pop while abstracting all those forms, ‘Colourgrade’ is an immersive listen brimming with love and life.
