Girl Colors - Bio

The fortuitous union of three Midwesterners, Girl Colors came together when guitarist Nick Walmer posted a ‘Musician’s Wanted’ ad on Craigslist upon moving back to his hometown from Portland, OR. Answering his ad were bassist Kyle Spears, who had recorded on his own for years, and percussionist Kyle Smith, a veteran of bands in the area. After trading demos online and meeting in person, the three tried jamming together and the chemistry was immediate. Each bringing their disparate musical tastes and combining with their shared reverence for indie pop rock, it was quickly apparent that when playing and writing together, the whole was greater than the sum of its parts. 

Sonically, Girl Colors’ songs take textural cues from shoegaze and dream-pop, but it’s the band’s melodic, sometimes off-kilter, songwriting that takes them further afield. Borrowing equally from psychedelic and underground indie rock, Girl Colors uses their serious instrumental chops and penchant for hooky choruses to elevate their final product head-and-shoulders above the mass of meandering college rock.
