Before we heard LOLO, we heard Colony House -- four dashing musicians hailing from Franklin, Tennessee. But if you’re looking for twang, keep moving.
These musicians put on a really brilliant performance at KGSR’s SXSW morning show. I was trying to chug coffee and rub the sleep out of my eyes, but was delighted by their noise. Colony House’s indie pop-rock is instantly likable -- and will be gobbled up by fans of Hunter Hunted, COIN, Knox Hamilton, and The Griswolds.
The band consists of brothers Caleb (vocals) and Will (drums) Chapman, who are joined by Scott Mills on guitar and Parke Cottrell on bass. They met in high school and have released two albums to date. Their sophomore release, Only the Lonely, just dropped on January 13.
"We don’t want our music to be an escape from reality," Caleb told Billboard in a recent profile. "We want to be part of that reality with our fans, and we want to give them an hour-and-a-half of something inspiring and hopeful. Like, everything that makes a up a good movie: devastating, tragic, but also really beautiful."
