Vancouver indie band Colour Tongues returns to Kelowna March 22nd with their debut at Doc Willoughby’s. Come see the band Daily Hive Vancouver voted as a top performance to see in Vancouver (alongside Lorde and Santana).
One day Australian front man James Challis came to Vancouver with his fender telecaster, met Canadian bassist Daniel Re and formed the band Colour Tongues. In early 2017, James met Dave Taylor at a party in East Vancouver, the two bonded and Dave auditioned for the band the next day. James and Dan felt Dave’s Grohl-esque power and flare for accenting would complement their choreographed tapping arrangements, and offered him the spot. Graeme Meekison, a 19-year old virtuoso with a love of metal and prog rock auditioned the next week, blew the guys out of the water, and thus the band formed in April 2017.
With a blend of influences coming from alternative, shoegaze, dream pop, grunge, classical, and jazz, the band has emerged with a distinct sound that blends the complexities of math rock with the accessibility of indie.
The band released their debut EP ten months ago, and had their premiere show at the Roxy Cabaret playing to a crowd of 200 people, a concert that drew raves prompting the Daily Hive Vancouver to recently list them as one of the Top 10 live shows to see in the city.
