Nashville’s own Colony House is changing the game in music. These 20-somethings from Franklin, Tennessee, have been together only since 2009, but the band is slowly making its way out of the indie category.
Colony House has had its fair share on alternative radio stations, grabbing the attention of millennial listeners. Two months after releasing an EP in 2014, Colony House debuted on Late Night with Seth Meyers. A year after that, the band made an appearance at Lipscomb University in Spring 2016. These boys have a future ahead of them with their album, Only The Lonely, that just came out in January 2017.
The sound this band creates is a new type of rock ‘n’ roll. They almost have a Beach Boys sound with its uplifting guitar playing mixed with melodies like Cold War Kids, creating a sound very similar to Vampire Weekend. With such a wide mix, the band manages to withhold its unique, original sound. What makes a song a Colony House song is the emotional lyrics. The group portrays such meaningful lyrics, which connects fans to the music. You’ll want to play this music with the windows down on a summer day.
