Colourwave which got many great reviews, feedbacks, keeps providing shelter for the modern human through music, where listeners can sink to themselves and their thoughts. “Risk It All” is a song of the possibility. One of our favourite track from the new album. Before the release in February we shot a video for it around some breathtaking European sights. In April of 2021 we would like to release the Deluxe version of Colourwave with some remixes, live sessions, reimagined versions, and a new song. The first tune from it is the night version of Risk It All, which is more mystic, minimal, and darker than the original” – said Belau about the new releases featured the fresh The Ivors Academy Rising Star nominee, Amahala.
