Infectiously danceable from the opening beats, The Sound and Color’s self-titled debut may sound like a pop recording, but in fact, the album is quite the contrary to modern-day pop records.

The Denver band — made up of vocalist Kyle Aubrey Simmons, guitarist Ryan Chrys, bassist Matthew Fecher and drummer Trevor Mariotti — built the entire release on a live studio performance, eschewing the genre’s normal cut-and-paste studio mumbo-jumbo.

Simmons’ powerful voice is front and center throughout the EP, but it’s Fecher’s bass, presented as a lead instrument, that stands out over and over. What makes it even more interesting is that taking the bass out of it’s normal corner isn’t at all required for The Sound and Color. Chrys is a figurative and literal beast all up and down his six strings and would have been fine as the lead instrument, but the back-and-forth play between the bass and guitar works wonderfully for the group.

The raw, anti-pop EP was released in mid-November, but early praise and word-of-mouth had already lead to KTCL (93.3) spinning a track before the album dropped.
