Last year COLOR WAR soundtracked and appeared in an art haus folk nightmare rebel-cinema full length feature called NIGHT AND A SWITCHBLADE. Before now it has been kept from public viewing, thought to be too powerful. This all changes Friday…

Friday April 18th at 8:30 PM, the Kellen Auditorium at Parsons screens Night and A Switchblade in all its gory glory for FREE. We’ll be there along with cast and crew members.

"A stark combination of elaborately arranged synths, bare-bones beats, and vaporous vocals, making for a 12-track set that lingers long after it fades into darkness."

One of our favorite producers right now.  

Phoenix-based DJ Clap has distinguished himself with the manic tempo of his footwork-influenced productions— a sound reflected on his debut album, Best Night Ever, which was released last year. His remix of synthpop band Color War’s “SOS” contrasts sharply with his previous work. The track is, by his standards, almost sedate— dominated by atmospheric synth pads and pitched down vocals rather than dense, rapidly cut samples. A paranoid drum pattern maintains a sense of anxiety throughout the remix, however. Perhaps this is an indication of a new direction DJ Clap’s work may be headed— but, then again, so could the three short “Gangnam Style” sampling vignettes he’s put on his Soundcloud in the past month.

AD HOC

Our astral-tragedy SOS gets a shakedown by sonic iconoclast Jamie Stewart of Xiu XIu, stripping away the soundscape and embalming  Lindsay’s vocals in a cacophonous tomb.

"Color War make dark, moody synth pop that walks a fine line; it sounds like something you could expect to hear in a club, but also something that you could see being remixed by Xiu Xiu. This remix of “SOS” drains most of the color and rhythms out of the track, leaving dissonant drones and a beat that thumps, but doesn’t inspire movement so much as deer in the headlights stillness. What’s left is the bare and now somewhat unsettling vocal track, barreling along nearly a capella at times, echoing like a diva in an abandoned club."   —  STEREOGUM

INTERVIEW MAG INTERVIEW

We had drinks with Erin Brady from Interview Magazine and it was, um.. illuminating?

"So, what’s the universe according to Color War like? It’s equal parts astrology, symbology, and philosophy; all set to shimmering synths and cascading vocals. Naturally, their latest single, "I Like It This Way," which we’re pleased to premiere here, fits right in. Featuring layered synth riffs and Mound’s breathless harmonies, the track is about the gravitational pull of a bad relationship. It’s a theme that recurs throughout their debut LP, It Could Only Be This Way, though you shouldn’t be too hasty in assuming anything about the duo from their track’s serious content. Below, Interview catches up with the band for a surprisingly lighthearted discussion of star signs, rejected band names, and the mom appeal of their music.”
