Tap Into The Chaos of Colony House in Visuals for "You & I"
There's a new indie-rock outfit you should get familiar with. They come in the form of Colony House -- four outstandingly talented young men repping their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Today they've premiered the video for "You & I," but it isn't just your calculated music video. These visuals give a very interesting and personal approach to their personal lives intermingled with playing in a band.
“The video for You & I…descends into chaos, instant replay smacks, freeze frame moments, egos colliding, slapstick horseplay…musically the Tennessee boys work a bright brand of indie-pop that's entirely at odds with the physical angst manifested in this video. But it's this very juxtaposition that makes this video so amusing to watch.”
You feel as though you're tapped into their practice while the original, studio track is playing. Getting a glimpse at the making of such a stellar tune pins the visual element as it should always be - creative yet informative, depicting the track with room for imagination.
Band practice isn't always a cake walk...
even if you're as tight as Colony House.
This track follows up their smash single, 'Silhouettes," which racked up over 8 million streams on Spotify alone and was #1 most played track on Sirius XM's Alt Nation for four months straight. Their 2014 debut album, When I Was Younger, gained massive attention and ultimately led to their signing with RCA. Look out for them follow up album, Only The Lonely, and catch the guys on tour this fall.
