The Color and Sound formed in the winter of 2012 in Billerica, Mass., as a collaborative idea between friends who played in other bands but also loved playing music together.
The hope of integrating the diverse tastes of the members into a cohesive project quickly came to fruition with the release of The Spring Tour EP in March of 2013, a few months into their tenure as a band. The resulting sound includes an array of constant group vocals, harmonies, and pop simplicity. In a live setting their music is, as the name suggests, an explosion of lights and sounds.
“Graves” – their single first released in November 2012, was picked up by Boston Emissions shortly after its online release. The band hit the road almost immediately and toured through the end of 2013 and into 2014.
While they continue to trek in and around the east coast, and most recently ventured into the midwest, they are setting their sights on recording a follow-up to the debut EP this spring.
