With a shout against apathy, Modern Colour is this week’s featured band
Strongly influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, and the deconstructed blues-rock pioneered by Jack White and The Black Keys, Philadelphia frontrunners Modern Colour combine components of hip hop, neo-soul, R&B, funk, and Americana with an overwhelming serge of live energy. In the November of 2012, Modern Colour released their debut EP entitled Rally at the Summit and produced by Dave Clauss (U2, Shakira, Wyclef Jean). The band’s first self-titled full-length hit stores in early 2013, and since then Modern Colour has hosted weekly jam sessions at the Legendary Dobbs, been featured on Philadelphia’s Radio 104.5, and highlighted as 93.3 WMMR’s Artist of the Month.
Although Modern Colour has opened for acts like The Roots, Tom Keifer, Davy Knowles, Joe Robinson, and Macaulay Culkin’s Pizza Underground, they’re returning to The Legendary Dobbs this Saturday July 25th with Gashouse favorites The Slim Kings, Working Class Villains, Jutaun, and Heroes in Error.
Tune in all this week to hear Modern Colour in heavy rotation. You can catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (Tuesday/Thursday 7pm ET).
