COLOUR - 2013


Feeling a bit camera shy


After hearing The Moderates’ debut EP, legendary rock star Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon offers the young indie rock band a chance to perform in front of ten thousand people. Cronin’s son had introduced him to the band on March 19th after discovering them on Instagram. The memorable opportunity for the band came on July 2nd 2014, opening up for REO at the San Diego County Fair.


From Long Beach, CA, The Moderates’ self released debut EP “Colour” was a piece of art that reshaped the band to it’s core. The attitude of the release is warm and welcoming, while the lyrics prove to have a witty and thought provoking nuance. Throughout the entirety of the EP are catchy chorus’ that discuss family, relationships, and finding a place in the world, especially on fan favorites “Strange Town” and “Where Are You”.
