They proved their proficiency by passing several tests. So there is no need to worry concerning the quality or uniqueness. Usually, when students are searching for a writing service, theyíre naturally a little bit nervous. What is more, they can be really disappointed because of a poor-quality Merwald‘s drumming, running along with¬† Koglek‘s guitar in the graceful instrumental sweep in the second half of “Life,” and generally filling out the melodic and rhythmic foundations of the material while offering a few standout moments of his own, such as the organ laying the bed for the soaring vocals — and I mean “soaring”; there are some pointedly operatic guest vocals going on there too — of the album apex “Be with Me.” The change, in other words, suits¬†Colour Haze. Their studio arrangements have been branching out since well before 2012’s¬†She Said¬†(review here) brought in strings and horns and 2014‚Äôs¬†To the Highest Gods We Know¬†(review here) answered back and built on those impulses, but from where the branching out is happening has changed, and their sound is that much richer for having¬†Faszbender¬†in the lineup on a hopefully ongoing basis.

Of course, signature elements remain.¬†Rasthofer‘s bass is still of singular tonal warmth and execution, and¬†Merwald‘s drumming makes progressive and jazzy changes no less fluid than the bassist’s runs from one fret to the next.¬†Koglek is still an explorer, and while longtime followers of¬†Colour Haze will recognize snippets like a push-off from the central riff of “Aquamaria” from 2006’s¬†Tempel¬†(discussed here) in “I’m with You” on side B, there’s also the four-and-a-half-minute centerpiece “Material Drive” to contend with, led as it is by acoustic guitar with¬†Koglek in the¬†RichieHavens-at-Woodstock role as the rest of the band gradually joins in behind,¬†Faszbender in particular making the song that much more of a high point of¬†We Are with a two-handed approach of organ and synth running concurrently while the bass fills out the mix. And I don’t know if that’s flute — which has been used on Colour Haze records before — or flute Mellotron, but anytime they want to do a record of semi-acoustic acid folk protest songs, I’m ready for it.

That’s not to take away from the running jam of closer “Freude III” or the earlier one-into-the-next-like-the-phrase-it-spells-out “We Are,” “The Real” and “Life” on side A or even the two-part side B complement in “I’m With You” / “Be With Me,” I’m just saying the arrangement of “Material Drive” works well. Really the same applies across the board on We Are, and the band are careful to acknowledge the role of the mix in their presentation of the material, balancing guitar and keys well even just as “The Real” takes off after the initial hooky shuffle of “We Are” itself starts the record at a rush, setting the tone in a way for what’s to come on an almost subconscious level for the listener. In some ways it’s less pointedly prog than was the prevailing spirit of¬†In Her Garden, which ran 72 minutes and was a 2LP of marked immersiveness, but as the band’s 13th long-player,¬†We Are confirms that even in their relatively new four-piece incarnation,¬†Colour Haze‘s focus remains on an organic feel and delivering the most natural sound possible.

Some spoken lines from Koglek¬†and his voice following note for note with his subsequent guitar lead are the only vocals on “The Real,” but as both that and the peaceful-build-int0-fervent-thrust of “Life” top eight and a half minutes, it’s early on that the band captures the listener’s attention and sets to unfolding the course of¬†We Are¬†as a whole, which of course side B expands beginning with “Material Drive” and moving through the layered vocals of “I’m With You” and more flute sounds on “Be With Me,” a whirlwind of guitar turns opening wide to the payoff of the album in the spirit of songs like¬†She Said‘s “Transformation” circa four minutes in, just before the vocals begin their aforementioned flight. That would seem to leave “Freude III” (‘freude’ being ‘joy’ in English) as an afterthought, but it turns out instead to seem to be answering some of the progressions of¬†In Her Garden while still holding to¬†We Are‘s particular balance, an enticing cascade of nuance and natural impulses that plays out across the seven-minute instrumental finale in two distinct movements, the last of which ends — suitably enough — on a long fadeout of synth as if to underscore how far¬†Colour Haze‘s journey has taken them not only since the riffier beginning of the record on¬†“We Are,” but in general across their span of years and span of albums.

They are inherently in conversation with their past on¬†We Are — the name of the record can certainly be taken as a declaration of self, despite how the songs portray it — as even those emergent titular phrases was an element put to use on 2008’s¬†All¬†(discussed here), and perhaps reflecting on a quarter-century of the band’s existence is a part of that either consciously or not, but they show as clearly as ever in this material that looking back by no means has to stop you from moving forward. I will gladly admit to being a fan of the band, so if you need to take this review with that in consideration, that’s fine. From where I sit, every time¬†Colour Haze puts out a record — and again, this is their lucky 13th — it is nothing less than a gift, and¬†We Are sneaks in under the wire as one of the best gifts 2019 has had to offer. For old fans, it offers something new in the shift of lineup and fleshing out of arrangements, and for newcomers, its refreshed sound should prove all the more welcoming. Quite simply,¬†Colour Haze make the world a better place.
