Hailed by Entertainment Weekly for their “howling electro-R&B beats,” Florida-based duo COLOURS is set to tour with electronic artist Robert DeLong this February. The dates will give fans their first chance to hear tracks from COLOURS’ forthcoming album Ivory, out on Victory Records February 26. Please see below for a complete list of performances.


PopMatters recently premiered the track “Lawless,” calling it a “sleek new single.” In premiering the video for the record’s first single, “Monster,” praised the song, noting that “fusing the sort of dark electronic undertones of Purity Ring and Crosses with post-modern, Weeknd-tinged R&B, Colours have created a lush sound that’s as dangerous as it is seductive.” “Monster” is currently featured in The A-List Alternative playlist on Apple Music and the Filtr Ultimate Indie playlist on Spotify. The track has also received a positive response at Alternative, Triple A and Active Rock Radio, debuting on FMQB at #2 on the SubModern chart. The track was also recently featured in HITS Daily Double’s “Hot New Releases.”


With Kyle Tamo on vocals and Morgan Alley on drums, the band entered the studio in early 2015 with producer Shaun Lopez (Crosses, Far, Deftones) to record their first full length. Ivory follows their self-released EP Skin and Bones, which prompted Alternative Press to name the band one of the “100 Bands You Need To Know” in 2015.
“Having only two members offers us a unique and advantageous opportunity when we are creating,” divulges Tamo. Formed in 2013, the band started off by releasing a series of music videos while working on inspiring ideas for the set for their live performances. The duo wrote the songs for their new album over a 14-month period and started experimenting with new music around August 2013. The recording took just six weeks at Lopez’s studio in Burbank. Of working with Lopez, Alley said, “Shaun has a great ear for tone. He was able to listen to the songs we created, understand the direction and breathe new life into them. In discussing the album’s lyrics Tamo explains, “We write with someone else’s feelings in mind. There is a purposeful vagueness to most of my lyrics, preserving the attractiveness of personal interpretation.”
