You should probably be listening to this band. Colourmusic

The band describes themselves as hardcore and a little Oklahoma Sex Rock. The are influenced by Brian Eno, The Beatles, and Serge Gainsbourg, just to name a few. The band has been described as a cross of The Polyphonic Spree and The Flaming Lips but the band states that what really influences them is color. They became interested in Isaac Newton‘s Theory of Color and Sound and focus their musical styles on a color. That color represents each song. They have produced two EPs called Red and Yellow, each song on the EPs reminding the band of that representative color.

The band is also known for the live shows. They usually have a theme such as “The Family Show” where each band member represents a member of the family, and multiple members wearing dresses. They have had Exercise shows, where they work out, as well as being painted on stage by audience members  and having their hair and clothes cut off during the show. Currently, the band is dressed in all-white track suits with members from the audience doing artwork on overhead projectors and the band being their canvas.

The band describes the first album as a collection of songs inspired by Isaac Newton’s theory on the relationship of colour and sound
