The boisterous cavalry of The Color And Sound recently wrapped up their march across the country on Modern Baseball’s Winter Tour and are heading home to play a vivacious set of indie rock on January 31st.
Formed in 2013, The Color And Sound was formed on the idea of integrating the diverse tastes of the members into a cohesive project, which quickly came to fruition with the band releasing the Spring Tour EP three months after their start. On the horizon of hitting the studio to start recording on their next record, the Boston sextet snagged a coveted spot on the now trending Maryland indie rocker’s post FEST Winter Tour, a ten-stop gallivant across the Northeast and Midwest promoting the upcoming full-length album, You’re Gonna Miss it All (Run For Cover Records), available in stores February 11th.
With influences ranging from folk to pop, there’s something for everyone in The Color And Sound’s hyper-audio sound. The five-track Spring Tour EP serves as a pure demo of the band’s abilities to adapt to various genres including the plucky banjo folk rhythm on “Graves” and harder grunge riffs on “Bruised and Battered”.
In a September 2013 interview with Property of Zack, the band explains, “When we do anything related to our band our only goal is to have as much fun as possible…we always try to translate how much we enjoy doing what we’re doing to whoever will listen,” which is successfully executed during the group’s energetic live sets.
Download the Spring Tour EP for free (at a name your price suggestion) on Bandcamp today and catch the infectious wave of good times when The Color And Sound kicks off The Appreciation Post’s Record Release Show with Pretty & Nice and USA USA USA, at TT the Bear’s, Central Square, Cambridge on January 31st.
