"The Big M Informs"

The Colour Compound finds these able musicians moving into something distinctly original, a sound that is by all means thoroughly refreshing. Nearly all of the tracks are constructed around poppy vocal hooks rather than big riffs, featuring dual vocal harmonies and hum along melodies that rightly capture the imagination. Tight songwriting by means of additional flourishes which always remain sonically distinct, prevent this group from succumbing to sloppiness and producing a steady stream of catchy pop/rock tunes. - The Big M


By Your Side – Single
Sincerely Yours – EP – June 2011



Starting off as an acoustic duo, who wrote songs about experiences that they’d had and shared, soon felt the need to expand their sound and found their way into The Colour Compound.

Bradley Tellis played in a band that called themselves 'Thrice 9' and Rohan Mazumdar who was a former member of 'Something Relevant', met in college and played in a band together after which they began writing songs and performing as an acoustic duo called The Hollow Bodies.
After playing a bunch shows within Mumbai and a few in other cities they managed to land shows like opening for the 'Scorpions' and playing at the Rolling Stone Magazine launch in India.
Meanwhile, Aditya Ashok and Adil Kurwa played drums & bass respectively for a 4 piece Alternative Rock act called 'The SOS' – a band that was on an indefinite hiatus at the time.

Bradley and Aditya played in the college band together the following year, around the same time as Bradley and Rohan were feeling like they wanted to experiment with playing with a full band set-up. Experimentation then began and a few months later 'The Colour Compound' was formed. 15 months after that, the band already has 2 albums worth of music, which is a tasteful blend of Pop, Rock, Blues, R&B & everything in between. But above all of this, the band simply makes honest music, writing about optimism, women, god, loss, and life itself.
Their first gig was part of a music festival held in late 2009. With regular gigs at venues like Blue Frog and Hard Rock Café amongst others within the city, they recently began traveling to play shows in other cities too with the intention of spreading their music.
