- 1950's lyrics: Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfilled. For, my darling, I love you, and I always will.

Cousins Tim Commandeur and Chris Holland have long harboured a passion for music and songwriting, and are both members of the ARIA Award-winning pop group Operator Please (currently on hiatus.. but still well worth a check out). The experience of constant writing, recording and touring in some of the most renowned venues and festivals led the cousins to realise their own ambition: a band of their own, Colour Coding.
The EP, ‘Proof’, was self produced in 2011 and was mixed by DnR Music, who have worked with artists including Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Ladyhawke (Got your attention now? Good).
The 5 track EP is full of deliriously catchy pop music. Dynamic percussion, soft soothing lyrics and is consistent track by track; but the most compelling thing that comes across with ‘Proof’ is how balanced the whole thing is. It’s smart, grown up and every part of every song is produced with a gentle touch, especially where synth is concerned. Nothing over-shadows anything else, this music is a far cry from the pop they were making with Operator Please.
I’m expecting some pretty good things over the next year. An album on the way, and a few more music videos (check out the video for ‘Perfect’), Colour Coding is simple boy pop music at it’s best. Well done lads.
(Also, they are incredibly attractive.. and Australian. Double bonus!)
