Bio

Forming in 2015, from the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, The Colby’s (at the time known as Tempus) have been working on creating their alternative funk/rock sound.
The band met through mutual friends and common aspirations. Influenced by the magic of the 70’s while also being inspired by the new breed of music out today, The Colby’s aim to combine those times while also creating something new and special.
In the bands first six months since inception, they had already played many local gigs and wrote many songs, which resulted in an EP they recorded and released soon after. The EP was called ‘Chocolates of Flowers’ and earned the band great success amongst their peers in the local scene.
After gigging for a solid year post the release of Chocolates and Flowers, the band saw themselves in a hiatus due to most of the members embarking on travels and other opportunities.
Late in 2017, the band (Tempus) was forced to change their name due to Trademark reasons. A year later the band reunited as The Colby’s and very quickly added to their catalogue of songs that sounded more mature than the last era of music.
Now 2019, the band feel ready and will aspire to make a serious impact in the Australian music scene with their debut EP “Skin” being released on 22nd March 2019, under their new name, The Colby’s.

They put it together well at the chorus. If you're into sleek pop-rock sounds with an emotional spirit then have a listen.

There's room to grow! Lyrics are straight up honest and simple - they pull on your heart strings. I really like that build at the end there.
