The Color Blew has released a lyric video for “10-4-46”. In celebration of their phenomenal sophomore album Light Switch turning 1, as well as being nominated for Best Live Act and Best Alternative Band at the South African Metal Music Awards, these Alt Rockers are ending 2020 with a bang.
The Color Blew bassist Marius Cronje comments on “10-4-46”
“Punk music has always been close to my heart and a major influence when it gets to the composition of the music. 10-4-46 is about the frenetic, fast-paced rough edges which surrounds the idyllic perception of what it is like to be in a touring band. All the faces. All the love. All the blood and sweat leaked onto stages and to fans. The ultimate middle finger to conformity!”
Liaan Horton (The Color Blew Vocalist and Rhythm Guitarist) comments
“When out of control, you crave no control, but sink into the embrace of chaos … that was the thinking behind impulsive lyrics when the moment created 10-4-46. I remember the beat being the foundation that led us to create this moment of chaos … the song was written in 20 minutes as a band. It’s pure and intense no preconceived notions no plan just chaos! 10-4-46 is fast, hard, dirty and out of control chaos … just like a Friday night on the road in some small town, can you feel … are you alive?”

The Color Blew represents depth and insight in a sea of over-produced, shallow, commercial music. They provide the “alternative” where talent and passion merge with meaning and sound – a place free from preconceived notions of how music should sound.
They often find discerning audience members getting lost in moments of deep listening, mesmerised by the artful sound and impassioned performance, unaware of what is happening around them. They work hard in the studio, play hard on stage, and strive for consummate professionalism, no matter the occasion.
