Three Years Younger + False Colours @ John Peel Centre

False Colours are an award-winning British male/female indie-folk duo who bring a refreshing blend of honesty, professionalism and playful self-deprecation to the stage as they perform their unique and intricate style of ‘happy/sad, rhythmic, jangle indie folk music.’

Their inventive and ear worm-inducing songwriting combines traditional open and fresh sounding folk style tunes, with a tenor guitar sound which is reminiscent of 1960’s jangle pop -which David plays both rhythmically and melodically, at the same time as providing a percussive drive via a foot pedal cajon. When combined with Polly’s warm and characterful basslines and the never ending vocal harmonies in their interesting but well blended singing styles, the thoughtful lyrics come to life with an original, unexpected sound that is sure to captivate, welcome, divert and uplift the listener.

Three Years Younger is an Indie-Pop duo formed in Suffolk in 2016, made up of sisters Megan and Charlotte Simpson. Over the past few years they have had success around the Cambridgeshire and Suffolk areas, winning the Under 18s Cambridge Band Competition and Kimberley Rew Award in 2019, and playing the main stage at Strawberry Fair!. In 2018 they performed on the Folk Club stage at the Cambridge Folk Festival and last year were excited to perform at Camp Bestival and the Big Weekend in Cambridge.

This year Three Years Younger released their debut Ep ‘Close the Door’, which was self-produced during coronavirus isolation. ‘After Inside’, the final song on the Ep received third place in the Radio Indie Alliance Charts, and the Ep itself provided the duo with large amounts of radio play on BBC Introducing, Cambridge 105, Sound Street Radio and a live set and interview on BBC Introducing Suffolk.

Now equipped with a full 4-piece band, Three Years Younger is excited to hit the stages with a full sound and lots of new songs.
