"Exclusive Premiere: Colours Emerge With the Dark and Seductive Video for ‘Monster’ Read More: Exclusive Premiere: Colours Emerge With the Dark and Seductive Video for 'Monster'"

If the two members of Colours had their way, you might never know their names. To them, all that matters is their music and the emotion it evokes. But once you watch the cinematic video for “Monster” – the powerful lead single from their upcoming debut album, Ivory – you’ll immediately want to know where Colours have been all your life.

The beginning of the story begins with an end: Vocalist Kyle Tamo and drummer Morgan Alley were both members of Florida-based post-hardcore outfit Burden of a Day until the band announced in 2010 that everything would be “changing.” During the next couple years, Tamo and Morgan refined the lineup and focus of Colours – which didn’t have a name until 2013 when the band released an atmospheric, post-rock EP called Skin and Bones. Although the sonic shift was unexpected, it was nothing compared to the evolution that brought the band to where they are now.

“We don’t want to use the band as an opportunity for ourselves, so there is no message and no personal statement being projected,” said Tamo. “Our personal experience finds the most resonating growth comes with internal resolution, and we hope to offer our music as the catalyst to that.”

Early this year, the pair began work on Ivory with producer Shaun Lopez (Far, Deftones) and the result is an album that blows away any preconceived notions. Fusing the sort of dark, electronic undertones of Purity Ring and Crosses with post-modern, Weeknd-tinged R&B, Colours have created a lush sound that’s as dangerous as it is seductive.

It’s a volatile combination that’s on full display in the band’s video for “Monster,” which Diffuser is extremely proud to present. “This music video gave us the opportunity to introduce the visual brand of Colours,” Tamo told us. “As the project developed, it was crucial that we gave attention to detail in order to maintain a cohesiveness within our brand.”

Ivory will be released Feb. 26 via Victory Records. - Diffuser.FM

Vocalist Kyle Tamo and drummer Morgan Alley formed Colours in mid-2013, after the pair discovered a shared commitment to presenting a complete musical package to fans.

"The way the band sounds is important, but what is extremely relevant to that is the way the band presents itself," Tamo said. "The way the band makes you feel when you see them and when you hear them."

Tamo says the Florida duo's upcoming record will focus on polished rhythms, melodies and vocals, all in the vein of dark pop.

"The step into this LP was something quite different from anything we've done in the past." And that's what's making it so exciting - it's finally something that we've been really adamant about recording." - Alternative Press


"Colours - "Lawless" (audio) (premiere)"

Florida synthpop duo Colours are set to release their new album Ivory on 26 February, and you can check out the sleek new single “Lawless” below.

“When I listen to music, I connect best when lyrics or song meaning is ambiguous,” says singer Kyle Tamo. “My preferred reception to any art is often when I form my own connection or interpretation. With that, I don’t often divulge the stories behind lyrics. I will say, without revealing too much, ‘lawless’ panders to the relationships we love that shouldn’t always be loved.” - Pop Matters

Bio

A Florida based band, Colours is...Kyle Tamo and Morgan Alley. Focused on making art through music. COLOURS exists to provide mood, reflection, experience, discovery...COLOURS is to inspire. 

“Having only two members in COLOURS offers us a unique and advantageous opportunity when creating,” divulges Tamo. “When too many people are working on a creative project, often personal preferences and risk have to be diluted for compromise. We don’t want to use the band as an opportunity for ourselves, so there is no message and no personal statement being projected.  Our personal experience finds the most resonating growth comes with internal resolution, and we hope to offer our music as the catalyst to that.”

COLOURS recorded their mesmerizing debut album, Ivory, in January 2015 with noteworthy producer Shaun Lopez (Crosses, Far, Deftones). Tamo explains the meaning behind the album’s title. “The album name Ivory holds a specific meaning for us.  Actual ivory has an amazingly intriguing juxtaposition.  Between the status symbol and richness of it, to the barbaric brutality of harvesting it, comes a comparable cause and effect for the album.”
