Boomkat Product Review:
‘The trees were buzzing, and the grass.’ is an album of collaboration with contributions from percussionist Michael Anklin, voice artist Natasha Lohan and performance artist Es Morgan as well as vocal appearances from friends.
"From the moment you press play, Wordcolour immerses you in his world, enveloped by the sound of rustling leaves, footsteps, gong-like synths and ghostlike, sometimes haunting, vocals. As you listen through, you will find the signature twinkling, magical style of Wordcolour, as it twists and turns through ambient and IDM.
The Wordcolour project started back in 2017, with the first output under the moniker via a Blowing Up The Workshop mix in 2019. With these ideas and sketches in mind, this album feels like a culmination of Wordcolour, marrying the two worlds he currently orbits in, between the early experimental concepts and the recent more club-focused output."
