Their VH1-approved single ”Free” makes Graffiti6 sound like Bruno Mars crooning over a Script outtake; the U.K. collective would prefer you thought of them as heirs to the Gorillaz ?art-pop throne. Swirling debut Colours actually sits somewhere in between, gently pushing their layered folktronica into a gauze-funk future. Ditch languid yoga jams like ”Calm the Storm” ? and skip straight to the kaleidoscopic beat tornadoes ”Stare Into the Sun” and ”Stop Mary.” B

Best Tracks:
Spry Stare Into the Sun
Fuzzy Lay Me Down
