The Colourist are two for two in my book. First we heard was the song “Little Games” and now, I’m stuck on “Yes Yes”. Perusing their online websites and social media pages, I really couldn’t find out too much about them. They’re from Orange County, CA and don’t really believe in artist mini-bios.
Maybe we should just let the music speak for itself.
The band do list their interests. ”Ghost hunting. Tropical drinks. Scratchers.”
“Until The Morning” by Akron/Family, from Sub Verses out April 30, 2013 on Dead Oceans. The new music video (directed by Brian Sowell) stars Miles Seaton singing to us with immediacy in a dilapidated house on a deserted street, the visuals reflecting the tense undercurrents of the song.
