Press Color effectively blends funk and punk (pfunk? fpunk? ?unk?) into something pretty avant garde and new, not unlike the sound sometimes delivered by The Fall (although a bit more formal in presentation). - Gina Pensiero

"There are times when I have bands in the studio that I feel like I'm witnessing something pretty important. This is some pretty solid stuff and it's different from so much of what I hear coming out of Detroit." - Craig Foley

(The band's) sound walks the line of both Wolf Parade and LCD Soundsystem, but with a trombone, and some seriously groovin' bass-lines. - Annie Moss

Press Color was formed in late 2004 when four friends from the Detroit area began meeting to exchange musical ideas, founded in funk, post-punk, and krautrock. In 2006, Reciprocations (EP) was released under the band’s former name, The Novel Citizen, and promoted throughout tours alongside Jeremy Enigk, Nomo, Chris Bathgate, and Mason Proper. Though the band has seen lineup changes since then, it has reemerged as Press Color, with members living in Michigan and New York City. The band is currently in the final stages of completing its full-length debut, which emphasizes their interest in dance music while offering an eclectic take on experimental rock. With their affection for odd-meter rhythms and winding melodies, Press Color embodies a marriage of pop and the musical avant-garde subliminally inherent in the contrasting environments of Detroit and New York.
