Color Tongue





Color Tongue release "Adult Lessons" from upcoming EP + plays Elsewhere 07.08.

Those who sit at college radio boards at two o'clock in the morning will find their new favorite song in Color Tongue's "Adult Lessons", the latest from the band and the first single from their upcoming EP Bealing Bells. Why will sprouting DJs fall in love with the opening crescendo of syllables and pounding drums signifying oncoming fear and demise? Because, building on the band's visual album "Us and the Bugs" out last fall, "Adult Lessons" creates a bubble of emotion rife with fading screams. Then, the bubble bursts in a joyful prance of synth arpeggios and a relentless crashing drum beat, while the quartet's vocals sing a twelve-note refrain to the heavens. It's fine meditation music for a dimly lit radio studio or studio apartment late at night - or at any time of day, in fact. Bealing Bells hits the Internet later this summer, but you can catch Color Tongue live at Elsewhere's Zone One on July 8th. - Will Sisskind





Psych rockers Color Tongue release visual album "Us and the Bugs"

Technology continues to expand the realm of what's doable and psych rock bands such as Color Tongue take full advantage of the possibilities. While the Bushwick quartet's next LP doesn't come out until later in 2018, they've released a visual album in the meantime called Us and the Bugs, a YouTube video of four songs set to an ocular feast of clips of mashed-up old cartoons, found footage of landscapes, warped dancers in bubble suits, and of course, bugs. It should hold you over through the winter while you wait for the album to drop; just project the video on your wall, turn off all the lights, and bundle up in your warmest blankets for the full effect. Watch Us and the Bugs in full below. - Will Sisskind





Color Tongue play The Knit on May 4 + talk about gear on Delicious Audio

Color Tongue is a spacey, indie-psych rock band hailing from Brooklyn. Their latest release, Sprouts, is 8 tracks of inventive, sometimes atmospheric tracks, that while feeling expansive, ground itself with both its fun and infectious qualities. With such a myriad of different sounds coming from their latest record, we were curious to hear the band talk a little about their creative process, and of course, their gear, check out this interview on Delicious Audio. Don't miss them live at The Knit on May 4th!

Also! Here's a list of the band's favorite emerging NYC bands!!! 





Color Tongue unveil video for 'Sprout," play the Knit on 10.10

The Deli NYC is delighted to premiere this deliciously lo-fi and bizarrely sci-fi video of 'Sprout,' a recent single by our current Artist of the Month Color Tongue. The colorful, heavily tactile sequence of images perfectly matches the song's organic sound, based on a vivid amalgamation of Devo-esque synths, crunchy guitars, and vocals that straddle the line between '60s pop and avant-psych a la' Animal Collective. This is music in which fun, imagination and catchiness go hand in hand (in hand) - what else can you ask for? Oh right... a great live show! You'll have that on October 10th at The Knit!





Color Tongue release single "Sprouts" off debut LP

Brooklyn band Color Tongue's latest single "Sprouts" is one of those rare songs where fun and experimentation coexist peacefully, integrating each other. On it, the self-described "dirty psych pop" quartet take an imaginative approach to songwriting, conjuring up dramatic dynamic shifts, unusual song structure and exuberant melodies. "Sprouts" is a strong initial introduction to their debut LP of the same name, scheduled for a summer release. The band should have some shows in August - stay tuned! —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Psych songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
