Band want Norwich City fans to be on the ball with new song
A Norfolk band are calling on Norwich City fans to back their song for the club’s players to run out to next season.
The-Colour, a five-piece band from Norfolk have written and produced their own track, called Who Are Ya?
The players usually run out on to the Carrow Road pitch to Song 2 by Blur.
The-Colour vocalist James Poole, who is a classically trained singer, said: “Why should we have to use someone else’s song for Norwich to come out to?
“Norwich’s promotion will bring so much to the area. It’s such a big deal.”
All profits made from the single will be donated to Bryan Gunn’s Leukaemia Appeal.
He added: “People should support us because they would be giving money to a really good cause and it’s a great song.

“It is a celebration of Norwich being promoted. It will start the season with a bang. If other teams hear the song they will know that Norwich means business.”
The track has received the backing of former Norwich City footballer Darren Eadie who tweeted: “A decent football song for a change! Support this Norwich band.”
The-Colour have been working on the single since December, months before City were promoted. The track was engineered by Owen Morgan, who also worked on an album by The Darkness.
The band are also holding a competition to allow fans to be featured in their video simply by sending in a short clip of themselves chanting Who Are Ya?
The-Colour is made up of Jenny Greenwald, a psychiatric nurse from Blofield, Scott Field, an urban search and rescue technician for Norfolk Fire and Rescue, James Poole, a language tutor, Adam North, a graphic designer from Long Stratton and Rob Forder, a road engineer from East Harling.
Opinions were divided on the Pink’Un message board.
One commenter, Daz Sparks, said: “That’s not a half bad tune...and to say that after just listening once is something.”
Canarino said: “A nice tribute but not my cup of tea...but then, I’m old...”
Rum Ol Boy added: “Football songs are usually quite cheesy but that was fairly good.”
