The Colourist :: Wonder Ballroom :: 04.12.14

The Colourist spent the day charming their way through Portland last Saturday, with sets that delighted fans at both Mississippi Studios and Wonder Ballroom.

For their 94/7 Session at Mississippi Studios in the afternoon, the Costa Mesa indie rockers played a tight, largely plugged-in set that sound remarkably similar to their appearance at December to Remember, last year - proving that they can rock small and large venues with equal abandon. At the end of the set, frontman Adam Castilla got to display a little diversity on their one unplugged song, an acoustic rendition of their song "Stray Away."







































Later that night, The Colourist's debut at the Wonder Ballroom (which Maya Tuttle noted was the largest venue that they've played on their tour) was preceded by two sets from equally talented but wildly different acts. Texas duo The Wind and The Wave started the evening off with a wonderfully haunting mix of indie folk, country and southern rock - the sort of music that makes you feel like you should be nursing both a beer and a broken heart. The enigmatically named Night Terrors of 1927 followed in a slightly jarring change of genre, switching out The Wind and The Wave's southern twang for dark, brooding synth pop. (It's probably worth noting that the band's lineup includes former Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett.)

When The Colourist came on stage, the crowd greeted them with a level of enthusiasm that came very close to rivaling Chvrches' reception, last week. As a headliner, something becomes readily apparent about The Colourist: while Adam Carilla may be the most visible member of the band, Maya Tuttle is obviously the backbone of the group - most of the band's songs are carried on the back her drumming and her breathy, Of Monsters and Men-like vocals. After setting the tempo (both literally and figuratively) for most of the show, Maya joined Adam in a brief scover Slayer's "Reign In Blood" before closing out the evening with their hit single, "Little Games."

While The Colourist may not be big enough to snag larger venues outside of Portland, their visit on Saturday proved that their fan-base in the 503 is alive and well.
