M.U.S.E. had the opportunity talk with Southern California band The Colourist from Orange County. We talked to the band prior to them hitting the stage at the Music Spotlight Series 5 Towers inside Universal Studios CityWalk. On this evening it was presented by local Los Angeles radio station, KROQ.
The ColouristÂ first stumbled upon one another in an underused warehouse in Orange County, CA, where Adam and Maya discovered the harmonic chemistry that has come to define the bandâ€™s bright and anthemicÂ signatureÂ sound.
Having spent much of 2012 honing their live show with the likes of Grouplove, Electric Guest and Dale Earnhardt Jr.Â The Colourist begin 2013 holed up in a small studio in Southern California. Itâ€™s there that Adam Castilla (vocals, guitar), Maya Tuttle (drums, vocals), Kollin Johannsen (guitar, bass), and Justin Wagner (bass, keys) committed their pop-fueled, indie-bred rock to tape before embarking on their first tour which included appearances at Coachella along with support shows with Metric and Youngblood Hawke and Atlas Genius.
M.U.S.E. talk to them about their latest release and the bands development.
