Black Pumas – Colors – Album Review

COLORS / Black Pumas

Adrian Quesada, producer; Adrian Quesada, engineer/mixer; JJ Golden, mastering engineer

Black Pumas have made a statement with their self titled double album, earning 2 grammy nominations for the single “Colors” for Record of The Year and Best American Roots Performance.

The bluesy, roots rock single is raw and emotional featuring lush harmonies with guitar riffs that stand out with a soaring guitar solo that is increasingly rare in popular music. The roots revival is a throwback to the soul singers of the Otis Redding era while serving up a modern twist that really shines in the overall production work of Adrian Quesada.

Having emerged as the Grammy’s Best New Artist in 2020, it is quite the statement to follow that up with Record of the Year and Best American Roots Performance for 2021.

Lyrics:

I woke up to the morning sky first

Baby blue just like we rehearsed

When I get up off this ground

I shake leaves back down to the brown, brown, brown, ’til I’m clean

Then I walked where I’d be shaded by the trees by a meadow of green

For about a mile I’m headed to town, town, town, in style

With all my favorite colors

All my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers see them like no other

All my favorite colors

It’s good day to be, a good day for me, a good day to see my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers, they see them like no other

All my favorite colors

Now take me to the otherside

Where the baby blues birds fly

In grey clouds, or white walls, or blue skies we gon’ fly, feel alright

Now we gon’ woo ooh woo ooh woo ooh ya

They sound like woo ooh woo ooh woo ooh ya

The least I can say I anticipate a homecome parade as we renegade in the morning

All my favorite colors

All my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers see them like no other

All my favorite colors

All my favorite colors

All my favorite colors, yes ma’am

My sisters and my brothers see ’em like no other

All my favorite colors

It’s good day to be, a good day for me, a good day to see my favorite colors

My sisters and my brothers, they see them like no other

All my favorite colors
