A Colourful Storm Takeover

  • Suburban Cracked Collective


Suburban Cracked Collective is an alias of Shaun Leacy, and his self-released album from last year, Private Failings (No Confidante Dictae), was one of my favourites. I seeked out all of his previous works (These Awkward Fractions, Pineal Dreams, Basquiat Upon The RSL) and was amazed by the consistency throughout them all. His music is tense and delicate and laced with a beautiful sense of melody. He’ll be releasing his next album, Swimming Amongst The Dregs, on A Colourful Storm next month.

A Colourful Storm Takeover

A Colourful Storm record label was established in 2016 and has since become a home for worldwide eccentrics. Based in Melbourne, Australia and run by Moopie, it’s fantastic in all senses of the word.

dublab promotes curiosity, experimentation, inclusivity, and connection.
