Biography

Blind Man’s Colour is the psychedelic brainchild of 19 year olds Kyle Wyss and Orhan Chettri, hailing from St. Petersburg, FL.

Spending their early teen years playing in various psychedelia-influenced and electronic projects, (”Pink Floyd/Led Zeppelin stuff,” they attest), their sound evolved into a very diverse range of organice folk, psych-drone, desert-rock and electronic ambiance. With the help of friend Sheridan Willard, the three spent senior year of high school recording experimental pop tracks in each other’s bedrooms.

Blending the modernity of Animal Collective, the experimentalism of Krautrock pioneers like Can and Faust, and the psychedelic leanings of early Pink Floyd, their debut album Season Dreaming recorded between 2007-2008 is a hodge-podge of ambient pop drawing from the band’s ‘oceanic experiences’ – sounding something like a day at the beach with nothing but a peyote towel and a busted boom box.

Awash in glistening keyboards, swirling acoustic guitar, stealthily recorded found sounds and harmonic, gleefully distorted vocals, Season Dreaming does a breathtaking job at mixing the natural warmth of an analog 4-track with the crisper, more contemporary vibes of your favorite lap top bands.

In 2009, through participation in an Animal Collective covers compilation titled Collected Animals, Blind Man’s Colour suddenly found themselves the subject of tastemakers attention. Indie Rock Cafe named them a 2009 Band to Watch, I Guess I’m Floating ventured, “A good chance of becoming my favorite find of 2009 less than one month in,” Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste twittered about his discovery and Kanye West got in on the action, with a blog post titled: “Some dope shit for my apartment” and urged someone to sign the band. And now, we are happy to report, Season Dreaming is being released August 18th.

The Warm Current's Pull

Written By: Chettri/Wyss

the warm current's pull

if i could, i'd notice that i am half asleep
it feels as though a current is pulling my weight deeper
and throwing these oceans behind me
and catching depths where the lights cannot reach me

in this underwater world where i'm lost, i can float, i can fly
the currents like wind, blow all the creatures in line
and my breath is in tack as both my lungs adapt
to the directionless waters beneath the winds laughs

my lungs surrender the waters
but only sights can drown
tumbling through the bubbles that i brought here
I hope it never spits me out

cuz under the land the sounds cannot break
so the life that surrounds conduct silent wakes
the sights reemerge as the suns light is bent
as it penetrates this escape where my time is spent

i will make friends with the sharks
who follow it's shine
i will soon close my eyes
to continue on this ride

the warm current's pull

jimmy dove

little jimmy was another creation
another newfound love
people run people fight
just to get a sight
of little jimmy dove

hey, used to being lonely?
I know a thing or two about it
those days ago when we were
so lost without a feeling

got a little something extra for your body
itll do you well
make you feel good, make you feel right
and by the end of the night
youll be hanging from the moon and
making friends with the stars

my brain is feeling strong
i know it won't be long
before what jimmy said comes true
he leaves me clues

gotta little something extra for your body
do you well
make you feel good
make you feel right
and by the end of the night
youll be hanging from the moon and
making friends with the stars

Kissing Minutes

Written By: Chettri/Wyss

kissing minutes

try not to tell me anything i don't already know
steal limits for surprises
make legacies for shows

you can catch me in the hallways
pressing footprints in the floors
to trace the steps of cosmic creepers
that jump from door to door

when i look inside my body
there is no way to see my heart
all my pieces feel so heavy
people call, "it's time to start"

peering in for sights and smells
but what they'll see they'll never tell
the simple wits to keep us hinged
a universal craving followed by an epic binge

if i have the time i'll be kissing minutes
and saving love for every season
to give me reasons that help me
help me on my way

when i look inside my body
there is no way to see my heart
all my pieces feel so heavy
people call, "it's time to start"

when i look inside my body
there is no way to see my heart
always try to keep things steady
but sometimes things just fall apart
