Color Tongue, an experimental quartet from Brooklyn, write songs that are as much bookmarks as they are weather forecasts; emotional meteorology. For the last three years, they’ve been exploring the corners of their attention, trying to figure out what makes them tick. Introspection meets aspiration, their sweet spot is pursuit. Their newest album “Bealing Bells” is more chronic than chronological, a collection of disparate songs written across several months.
Color Tongue have been eagerly awaiting the release of their sophomore EP. The follow up to last summer’s etherial ‘Us And The Bugs’, a 15-minute audio/visual farmhouse opera, ‘Bealing Bells’ strikes a more serious tone. Unlike their last record which was written and recorded in two days on a farm, this one was crafted over the course of months and recorded in studio during the dreary New York City winter. It's more examination than exploration, it's more ambitious. Color Tongue's latest release is an ode to the changing of seasons, in both climate and life.
One listen to SKYFACTOR’s most recent release SIGNAL STRENGTH and it’s clear these guys know how to craft memorable and powerful “Rockoustic” songs that grab you from the get-go -- and won’t let go. SKYFACTOR’s simple but effective melodies combine with edgy dynamics to take the listener on a ride each and every time.
Formed on a rooftop in the East Village of New York City, despite all hailing from Westchester, SKYFACTOR was born when the musical paths of longtime friends Bob Ziegler and Jason Taylor (formerly of Michigan’s Brother Rabbit) and brothers Jon Rubin and Cliff Rubin (formerly of NYC’s Sky Blues) finally crossed. Almost instantly the songs started flowing, and they knew they were on to something.
Their debut album Daydreams received much critical acclaim and notice, including that of MTV’s hit show Teen Mom, who chose the track “OK” as their season 2 finale theme, resulting in thousands of downloads and streams from around the world. Skyfactor also must have a big fan at NBC's The Voice, who used another cut from Daydreams no less than three times in the same season, including the finale which was seen by 14 million viewers.
After the success of Daydreams, the band honed its musical chemistry and style on countless NYC stages for the next two years before heading back into the studio to capture the group’s surging energy and momentum. The result was SIGNAL STRENGTH, which further spotlighted personal, insightful lyrics backed by a big acoustic guitar and one very powerful rhythm section. The guys even had a song from the album prominently (and humorously) featured on Adult Swim’s popular Eric Andre Show, resulting in even more buzz for the band.
SKYFACTOR is currently putting the final touches on their brand new record (due Sept. 7th), which truly represents the quartet in its finest form yet, thanks to an even deeper level of songwriting and an ever-growing soundscape. 107.1 THE PEAK even featured the lead single “A Thousand Sounds” on a recent ‘9:37 Local’ spot, as the band gears up for a slew of high-profile regional and festival performances this summer and fall.
All of SKYFACTOR’s music can be found on iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon, and other online services. New song previews, tour dates, and plenty of music videos can be found on the band’s website www.skyfactormusic.com.
