COLATURA

bio//

 

Brooklyn trio Colatura is the brainchild of Jennica (bass, vocals), Digo (guitar, vocals), and Meredith (guitar, synth, vocals). Their foot is in a number of indie genres, writing music that is sometimes dreamy, sometimes heavy, with pop-leaning melodies and post-punk atmospherics. With multiple lead vocalists, they have been called "Fleetwood Mac with Shoegaze Guitars," and the intermix of vocals, alongside jangly guitars and melodic bass lines, is the cornerstone of their signature sound.  Colatura has been featured by NYC-tastemaker Oh My Rockness, who described their music as “surf jangle meets swirly melodic dreams meets a 50's sock hop meets some good old rock and roll.” They have played notable NYC venues such as Rough Trade, Baby’s All Right, Mercury Lounge and Elsewhere and are a SXSW '22 Official Artist. In a review of a recent live show, Full Time Aesthetic said “the easiest way to describe Colatura is they’re like sunshine streaming out of an amplifier with its volume set at nine”.  Their debut full album 'And Then I'll Be Happy' is due out April 22, 2022.

"With varying styles which range from synthy post punk new wave to early 60’s girl group vibes, I would say the easiest way to describe Colatura is they’re like sunshine streaming out of an amplifier with its volume set at nine."

“Team Sport is a dreamy, warm treat in the dead of winter.”

"Drawing on a range of influences from '50s female-fronted outfits to Manchester post-punk and all manner of noisy things, Colatura sounds both of and out of its time, delivering music that seems to have always been"

"Dream pop and surf guitars are one of those indelible combinations that have proved truly timeless, and 'Team Sport' is an instant reminder of why. The upbeat surf guitar, blissful washes of synths, and brilliant bursts of melody make for a decadent dream pop reverie, recalling classic influences like Cocteau Twins as well as contemporaries like Alvvays or Yumi Zouma."

"Warm and vibrant indie-rock stunner"

"The Met is a mash-up of jangling sixties pop with a bit of shoegaze thrown in. Introspective and sad, but also damn catchy thanks to Meredith Lampe's sparkling lead vocals."

-HERE COMES THE FLOOD

\\  full review //

"This is what they call dynamics folks, King Kalm ebbs and flows through 3.39 of carefully constructed delicacy and genuinely ends far too soon. Little details like the undulating synth line picking out the melody, the cymbal accents and of course those harmonies, all three members dipping in and out like comforting angels at your shoulder."

-FADEAWAYRADIATE

"With the jangliest of a dream-pop essence that flirts easily with Sunflower Bean / Wild Nothing comparisons, This NY based trio have produced consistent beauty in recent releases and this single is no exception."

-JANGLEPOPHUB

"Colatura was everything that I’d hoped for…the band was clearly stoked to be where they were, doing what they were doing…playing infectious jingle jangly, harmony laden, happy music. With three lead singers...you would wonder if there would be enough space in a set to flesh out each of their voices. Fortunately this never seemed to be an issue. Trading vocals back and forth throughout the evening like two grade school kids swapping baseball cards in the school yard, the band fit together like a glove, or maybe more like a mitten, taking five fingers (or in this case four musicians) and making them one."
