Color War is a Brooklyn-based electronic duo. Billy J and vocalist Lindsay Mound originally bonded as visual artists in 2004. A natural creative symmetry forced COLOR WAR into existence in 2009. The band soon began forging songs through hazy improvisational sessions, with J piecing together beats and synth textures and Mound responding as a medium, channeling melodies and lyrical content in real-time. Their forthcoming album It Could Only Be This Way (to be released March 4, 2014) illustrates the depth and transcendence of their sound. Mound’s vocals crest and slink thru arrangements that conjure a familiar pop cadence stretched across dark and glimmering soundscapes. Their layered, gauzy sound and transporting live shows have captivated fans and propelled them into band-to-watch status. COLOR WAR and their live visuals collaborator, Brandon Sciarrotta, produced the record with co-production and mixing by legendary techno wizard, John Selway.
