"La corde est tendue, prenez bien la perche en mains, on glisse le premier pied, on ne regarde pas en bas, voilà, ça y est, vous marchez sur un fil. Au loin le soleil se couche sur la ville, les lumières dansent et là-haut pas un souffle, aucun risque de basculer, juste la concentration nécessaire et les Bigcolour."
"Chicagos Brian Brissart är mannen bakom lo-fi/tropical/psych-alteregot BIGCOLOUR, och hans senaste släpp Centuries of Summer borrade sig precis djupt ner i mina drömmar om svunna och bekymmerslösa sommartider. Huruvida sexspårs-EP:n verkligen förgyllde mitt undermedvetna eller inte är oklart – det är ju mestadels bara trams, men mitt medvetna mår i alla fall bra av det här."
-No Modest Bear
"I’m afflicted with this issue of only being able to describe music currently as “hazy” or “haunting” or “churning.” Somehow, I consider it writing ability, I’m able to lump any and every song in to one of these categories regardless of the speed, length, genre, or instrumentation used. Thus, when I stumble across a song that actually adequately fits in to one of these categories I find myself, shockingly, at loss for words. Grasping about in the dark for some other descriptor that’ll fit the correct bill. Bigcolour, the one man project of Chicago’s very own Brian Brissart has thrown me in to just such a vocabulary-less tizzy. This is certainly hazy, haunting music with an equally hazy, haunting video to match it, but putting those words down on paper just lumps it in with the rest of the musical world. Bigcolour stands above the crowd, I’ll tell you that, both in song and video, somehow crafting music that weds lo-fi vocals with a mature, fully realized, ahem, haze of instrumentation. It’s like hearing the low bay of wolf through a dense forest. Or the distant caw of a seagull across the crashing waves. Or just really good music paired with a brilliantly colored video. I am smitten with Bigcolour."
-Sound on the Sound
"Chicago’s one-man sound collage artist, Bigcolour, has just dished out his second free EP along with a new video for the fantastically minimal “Red Silk Bow”. The track and video alike are strongly reminiscent of seasonal changes - their Autumn tones/hues and down-tempo riffage basically signaling Summer’s end."
"Unfortunately, summer doesn’t grace us for centuries but only a few months, months which always seem like weeks because their beauty fades way too fast. So, we can rather wait until climate change makes our planet a desert or we can listen to BIGCOLOUR‘s raw and unmastered sound that’s vivid as the summer days each and every year."
-The Daily Choice
"All the songs on the album were written during spring/ summer 2010, helping the dreamy vibes to feel real and honest.The cover work by Jordan Vouga expresses the sentiments of the sound pretty well, so for now I’ll let you dip in to enjoy the last fresh drops of summer"

"BigColour is a minimalist experimental lo-fi project of Brian Brissart of Chicago. He just put out a new self-released album through Bandcamp titled - Centuries of Summer, and it's impressive. BigColour has an infrastructure and general noisiness similar to Canadian band Women, and the vocal/guitar phrasing comparable to California band Ganglians, or New Jersey's Real Estate. The songs are loud, but laid back, damaged but endearing, and melancholy but uplifting."
"The live show is nothing short of intense. This kid will warp your mind. He'll freak you out, make you feel warm and fuzzy, then shake your bones. The show does not get old, it only gets better. You will be blown away each time you hear him (sometimes accompanied by a drummer) live. You'll think he's cheating-with a band behind the curtain-but he's just that awesome. You will leave your body, take a psychic journey somewhere in yourself and come back a little more, as Hendrix would say "experienced"."
"Big Colour είναι ο Brian Brissart από το Chicago. Δημιουργεί καταπληκτική ατμοσφαιρική μουσική και οι καλές γλώσσες λένε οτι τα live του είναι ακόμα καλύτερα. Μέχρι στιγμής είναι η μόνη του κυκλοφορία και την προσφέρει δωρεάν. Στο power stranger μου δημιουργήθηκε η εντύπωση οτι ακούω τους ηλεκτρονικούς Beach House, ενώ στο boo boo nest φλερτάρει με την Αφρική. Πολύ ωραίος δίσκος.."
