Color The Lion

Their debut ep, 1s & 3s, released October 13th took over the iTunes Alternative & Top 100 Indie Albums chart in three countries and features a dose of each member’s musical bloodlines. But at the core of it all, there’s a strong philosophy of making music that’s for the people, positive and enjoyable. According to Veloz, “We took the best parts of pop/dance music…the catchiness and movement…and blended it with the best parts of hard rock…the driving beat, the message and the “raw” feel…to put together the kind of music people can feel good about.”

Yes, there is a philosophy here: That music should feel good, that a song can have a message that isn’t putting anybody down, and that celebrates what makes each person unique. For starters, the cut “Planet Earth” puts its finger firmly on the pulse how a little self-acceptance can help make things right in a world that feels all wrong, all set to a heartbeat rhythm. “Karma” may be a crazy girl, but this cut hypnotizes with its sinuous, curvy melody.

It is about time that music celebrates fun while challenging some brain cells, and Color the Lion’s does just that.
