The Color Blew are hard at work on their new album, so whilst you wait a bit longer for their new material, here is a Lyric Video for their track “The Man” from their phenomenal sophomore album Light Switch.
Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) comments on “The Man”
“The Man was written as sardonic commentary on shallow sham pretenders who do seemingly good deeds for iniquitous reasons! They portray themselves as saviours, but in reality, they just cause more damage and destruction than any real good. In the end, the unfortunate folks they claim to be saving were better off without their pretend interventions!”
More info about The Color Blew
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.
While The Color Blew has only been together since 2014, our combined years of band experience total over 65 years. They are a four piece outfit consisting of Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) Marius Cronje (Bass Guitar) Timothy James (Lead Guitar) Armando Santos (Drums). They are based in the East Rand of Gauteng, where they rehearse, create, record and produce our music in our own studio located in Springs.
Asking them to categorise their sound into one sub-genre of rock music would be like asking a painter to use only one colour paint. Their music could be broadly considered “Alternative Rock”, but there are many more nuances. Their core material is heavily coloured by grunge and punk, and can be found on our debut album: The Canvas (2018).
Their newer music brings in the bright hues of jazz and African beats, blended with meaningful lyrics. Their newer music brings in the bright hues of jazz and African beats, blended with meaningful lyrics. This is evident from their sophomore release Light Switch (2019).
