Roosevelt is the chosen moniker of Marius Lauber, a singer, songwriter and production extraordinaire whose fanciful pop creations are nothing to be sniffed at. With an extensive list of gigs under his belt, a great reputation and a debut album at the ready, now seems like a good time for the solo artist.
Fusing percussive tribal beats with skittish electro chirps and humid key changes is always something that will grab our attention and fortunately "Colours" does just that. In the same vein as Foals and The Other Tribe, Roosevelt manages to envelop his sound in a warm atmosphere. Swirling pools of nu-disco beats and frittered synth changes spill out as each chorus fully erupts and festoons the soundboard with summer hazed instrumentals and pointed lyrics as Lauber details the moment someone leaves you and they remove that certain something from your life. Disco-pop is back.
