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.
