The Technicolors are a musically sophisticated young rock band hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, who blend grand gestures of rock-n-roll with elements of classic acoustic rock. Their ambitious new album Listener deluxe is available now on Bay Area Independent label, Tallest Man Records.
Listener was recorded over a span of ten days in January at a new studio in Phoenix called Studio at the Farm. Fresh off the road, The Technicolors had found a new energy and were anxious to make their debut album as a band.
The Technicolors spent 2011 and 2012 hitting it hard, tirelessly touring the nation and finding their sound as a band. With driving electric guitar riffs and a flair for the dramatic, the band started gaining a reputation of being loud...in a good way. They closed 2012 with a West Coast Tour as main support for ...Trail of Dead last Fall.
"We would show up to these tiny bars with a lot of gear and get really loud. We love big songs," says Smiley.
Citing influences like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, and the Travelling Wilburys, The Technicolors focused on creating a dynamic album of expansive songs that can be musically complex and artistic and still reach a vast amount of people. Listener weaves ambient electric guitar beds with searing solos punctuated with Smiley's earnest vocals reminiscent of Oasis and Wolfmother.
Expansive // Virtuosic // Heartfelt // Addicting -- Newly signed to Atlantic Records and hailing from Provo, Utah - birthplace of Neon Trees and Imagine Dragons - FICTIONIST is the real thing. These five multi-instrumentalists meld arena-rock swagger and intimate, raw songwriting for an unforgettable live experience. With singles dropping this summer and their major-label debut LP a few months later, be ready for explosive things from FICTIONIST.
The Golden Ghosts
“Their music is groovy and really quite infectious”
“Twangy Southern-inspired brand of rock ‘n’ roll”
“Cool rock rifts and inciting timbre that you can’t help but tap your feet to”
“Their sound can be attributed to a 70′s rock revival mixed with your favorite elements of shoegaze and post punk. [They] put on a show nothing less than an energetic party starter”
