Single Review – Manic Street Preachers – Distant Colours

As we approach the April 13th release date of the Manics’ thirteenth studio album Resistance Is Futile, the ever-present Welsh rockers have released a second single in ‘Distant Colours’. It is another foray into their standard, earlier sound with this track not sounding out of place on Gold Against The Soul from 1993. With brushing percussion and light riffs against James Dean Bradfield’s subtle vocals, the track then opens into lighter shades with broad guitars and more powerful vocal for the chorus. This track does not surmount to anything special or surprising like Futurology, but remains faithful track unto themselves if nothing else.
