If one were to describe the Elwins‘ newest lyric video in a single word, it would be “effervescent”. It’s vivacious output from the JUNO-nominated Toronto collective that positively bursts with colors. That is well-fitting, all considered that this is a video representation of their current single, “Watercolour”.

The song is the latest the be featured from their recent full-length release, Beauty Community. It is an upbeat, infectious listen from the moment it starts to spin. It maintains a palpable bass line teaming up with bright and sunny synth to make up its primary instrumental makeup as Matthew Sweeney, as per always, delivers the vocal goods across a sensational earworm of a melody.
