"Set It In Colour" is a welcoming cover replete with an intense energy that immediately draws the listener in. There is a superb depth to the track that few, if any bands are able to achieve. It is not so much that the band is comprised of three members, but the sound emanating from this cut and the entire album for that matter makes a definitive statement about the success that Sulu Babylon has received and what will undoubtedly come.
On "Children Of Sailors," the bass line offered by Corey Jones along with Killingsworth and Johnson's vocals make the track radio-friendly for both alternative stations, and indie rock ones.

The COLOUR EP ends with "Save Our Souls," a heavy and hard-hitting authoritative sound.

Forming in 2010, the band sound as if they are seasoned rock veterans. It is a testament to their thorough knowledge of how to create rock that can hook any music lover.
