Astrocolor perform and record live electronic music, recalling the Chemical Brothers, Air, and St. Germain. The band plays on the edges of funky house, Balearic, breakbeat, and ambient.
Astrocolor II, the second release in an ongoing trilogy of EPs on Softtone/eOne, sees the band tackle minimalist house (“Tokyo Metro”), new jazz (“Figure it Out”), alternative house (“Push Too Hard feat. Fox Glove"), and dark breakbeat (“El Escape”). Mixed by Count (Tycho, DJ Shadow), Astrocolor II provides a silky smooth soundtrack at home or a chest-thumping experience in the clubs.
Latest singles "Sunshine feat. MAKUTA" and "Break Your Body" are now available everywhere, and expect Astrocolor III – the final EP in the trilogy – to be released on April 6, 2018.
Astrocolor have had a busy 2017 to date, playing seminal west coast festivals such as Song & Surf, Tall Tree, and Atmosphere Gathering, as well as making debut appearances in Toronto (Canadian Music Week), Seattle (Upstream Music Festival), and Vancouver (with Five Alarm Funk at the Commodore Ballroom). The band formed in 2015 and are based in Victoria, BC, Canada.
