Album Notes
'Transmission Breakdown' is the fourth EP from 'Colourwheel'. It features five previously unreleased tracks plus the original version of ‘Movement’ (an alternative version was included on the band’s second EP '4 Speed Overdrive').

Track Listing:

1. Untitled Pop Song
A short but infectious power-pop song with big guitar hooks and a sing along chorus.

2. Underworld
A dirty track about a dirty world featuring feedback, aggressive vocals and pumping drums.

3. Soldier’s Pay
A more introspective and layered melodic tune exploring the pointlessness of armed conflict.

4. Movement
An epic guitar track reminiscent of nineties shoegazer bands like Ride.

5. Junkyard
A pumping power-pop song influenced by bands like The Pixies. The track explores the themes of addiction and decay.

6. Growing Pains
Colourwheel often played this rude, messy song as an encore. The fast paced pumping rhythms, drum rolls, guitar hooks and deceptively simple arrangement made Growing Pains a crowd favourite.
