AMBY…… and World – we’re COLOUR. Formed 2 years ago from the embers of three other groups spread 600miles apart. Made up of childhood bandmates Scott Harvey (guitar) and Liam Downey (bass), studio owner/ producer Connor Dickson (drums) and Singer-Songwriter James Tidd (guitar, keys, vox). We endeavour to make a heady mix of Glitchy Electronic, Indie-Math, Art Rock that’s a bit different. We came together in a dingy practice room in Liverpool in ’13 and graduated to our drummers hand built studio in early ’14 and have been way hard at work since… WAY. We love making music and those that get it really get it and that’s spurred us on no end. We do everything in house to keep it as ‘us’ as possible, we’re passionate about every part of being a modern band, artwork, videos, playing live.
We recorded our debut single ‘Strangers’ at Liverpools Part St Studios (with some amazing alumni: Morrissey, Genesis, and a tonne more) with Tidd’s childhood friend and co-producer Tom Longworth. It was all done in a frenzy and the sound was vulcanised from then on! Raw guitar tones, electronic 808 bits, off beat drum lines, heavy bass riffs… That’s us!
COLOUR will play a pre-match show at the City of Manchester (Etihad) Stadium in November. The 2nd time they’ve been asked to play this gig, an honour previously bestowed upon The 1975 & Jonny Marr.
