Biography

Europe in Colour is an indie pop/electronic band from Toronto. Rebecca (vocals, keyboards) Alt (vocals, bass, trumpet, drum programming), and Ghalib, long-time friends since high school, started the band in early 2006, and Dave (guitar) joined in early 2008. Dave is also a member of The Ghost Is Dancing (Sonic Unyon).

EIC's brooding dance-pop is a blend of diverse influences such as the Junior Boys, LCD Soundsystem, The American Analog Set, Daft Punk, Yo La Tengo, Belle and Sebastian, Broadcast and Erlend Oye. They have shared the stage with other up-and-coming artists such as The Magic, Basia Bulat, Hexes & Ohs, The Ghost Is Dancing, Great Bloomers, and Green Go, and have performed at many well-known Toronto indie music series such as Wavelength, No Shame, Two Way Monologues, and Easy Tiger. They have toured all over Southern Ontario and Montreal.

In October 2007, Europe in Colour released their debut self-titled EP, a completely self-recorded and produced 6-song record that caught the attention of Canadian indie radio. "Last Flight To Paris" was in regular rotation on CBC Radio 3 from January-April 2008, and has been played on former CBC Radio 2 institution "Brave New Waves". The EP has also seen airplay on 15 campus radio stations across North America, and charted in the top 30 at CHRY Toronto, CILU Thunder Bay, and CKDU Halifax. In May 2008, the band was featured on KALX Berkeley's “The Next Big Thing”, and in December 2008, the band was interviewed on "Lullabies in Razorland" on CFMU Hamilton. Another EP is currently in the works, with recording current underway, and recording of a full-length is scheduled for Spring 2009.
