A Punk-inspired female trio from San Francisco, Brilliant Colors plays the role of sugary confidante. Each of the songs boasts a distinct pulse capturing a mood as fuzzy as the sound itself. There’s nothing really sexy about Brilliant Colors. But it’s hard to not develop a slight crush on their quirks regardless- for instance, the way lead singer Jess Scott sings as if she’s being coerced to read from a rhythmic teleprompter. The “riffiness” of Introducing is replaced on Again and Again by a more layered approach, initially deceiving upon the album’s first spin. There is genuine replay value here beyond the listener simply leaving it on loop by accident. Highlights like “Hey Dan”, "How Much Younger", and “Back to the Tricks” reveal Brilliant Colors at their most hypnotic and dreamy. As an album, Brilliant Colors’ Again and Again is fun first and ambition second. But the ambition has definitely been in training.
