Colt Silvers

Venue: Redlive Club

Details: Eternal unshaven kidults playing hide and seek at the frontier between the organic and the synthesis, the three boys in COLT SILVERS create their own intense sound, made of bright pop intervals and silky electronic layers, spangled here and there with angelic voices. With a wealth of such explorations they release in spring 2013 Red Panda, a new, dense and wooded album, carried by various collaborations and a most refreshing eighties temperament. A new EP came last June and the next album will be released in 2015…  < Official website >   < tickets & more >
