Bio

The Sydney psych-groove quartet are finally ready to deliver their debut EP, 'Mood Lighting'. Having supported the likes of the Belligerents, Gang of Youths and Ocean Alley, King Colour are officially dropping the EP's first offering, 'Lost My Cool'. King Colour’s latest release puts an end to a brief period of radio silence, following their two psych-groove hits “You Just Don’t Know It Yet” and “Blue Horizon” that received Triple J airplay, community radio support and a lot of blog love. In this time King Colour, as well as members from Jermango Dreaming and SCK CHX, launched their own artist-run label Yeah Nah Yeah with global distribution and a solid reputation as a Sydney events collective. Yeah Nah Yeah has earned it’s stripes throwing huge, multi-media underground events across Sydney’s Inner West, showcasing local bands, DJs and visual artists and really shaking up the live scene.
