“Mellow is the feeling that I get when I see her.”
Richard Gottehrer and Allison Zatarain bring you a heartfelt version of the Donovan classic “Colours.” Hear both versions and how the track brought out singer Erika Spring’s (Au Revoir Simone) inner “flower child,” self-love, and the peace she feels with her young child. Resident musicologist Richard Barone sings the Scottish folk song to Richard G. that inspired Donovan’s lyrics. Allison and Rebecca Morehiser visualize a vibe inspired by the first morning rays of the sun. Engineer Alonzo explains how boom bap drums took the track from mellow to anthemic in the Orchard Studio.
