COLORING ELECTRIC LIKE
Portland-based Coloring Electric Like combines the heavily effected guitar of shoegaze rock with synth-driven sounds and beats from trip-hop and industrial influences. Layers of guitar and multiple drum and synth loops have drive and edge, while a backdrop of lush synth and strings is sublimely orchestral. The result is a sonic landscape, with provocative female vocals.
The duo produces a sound that is surprisingly big, with a haunting feel and danceable groove.
In 2015 Coloring Electric Like contributed to the New Order Tribute Album, Dreams Never End, on The Blog That Celebrates Itself Records,
making the Shoegazer Alive Best Compilations of 2015 and
Forkster's Finest 25 Album Selections for 2015
Their self-titled EP supported their spring tour in 2016, paired with Seattle act Cannabidroids, on the Robotic Stimulus Tour which included Reno, Boise, Salt Lake City, El Paso, and Las Vegas.
