The Colour Pit Short Info

The Colour Pit

Formed after a meeting of the local David Bowie Appreciation Society, The Colour Pit's sound is an eclectic blend of dreamy space rock, early 90s indie rock and electro-psychedelia with lyrics that bring you back down to earth. Altering the conscious state, they will take you away from wherever and whatever you are with their unique brand of auditory sorcery.

"breaking the convention of radio-friendly pop songs and pushing the boundaries of our own capabilities as musicians and song writers is the only way to keep things interesting for us and the people who come to see us"
Stevie - Lead Singer

Taking the DIY approach of putting on their own gigs, with an intergalactic light show bearing comparisons to both the 60s underground happenings of Sydney Barrett era of Floyd and Acid House Trance of The Hacienda club.

From a small town slap bang in the middle of the two North West cities that have delivered an unrequited presence within most genres of music, The Colour Pit have undoubtedly been influenced by their geography. That said they don't sound like a stereotype of this conglomerate but have influences such as Pink Floyd, REM and MGMT peeping through their sound.
