Color Tongue unveils video for "Over The Moon" + plays Sunnyvale 11.29

Brooklyn psych rockers Color Tongue are premiering here their new video for single Over the Moon, from their three-single EP Bealing Bell, released this past September. The track is (some kind of) love song for a passerby that's at once sweet and borderline indecent, including lyrics like "I'd be over the moon, if you walk with me, we'd fork and we'd sppon." Blending a variety of genres in unexpected and psychedelic ways, the song is mostly based on a colorfully arranged reggae beat, although after minute four things change quite radically, with a slow reprise suddenly morphing into a wall of noise finale. The video itself is also a mix of different footage, where home videos depicting the band are mixed and faded with vintage B-Movies, creating a glittering stream-of-consciousness effect. Color Tongue will celebrate this release with a show at Sunnyvale on November 29 with OOX, Haunted Horses NYC, Castle Black and Private Siren.

Color Tongue release "Adult Lessons" from upcoming EP + plays Elsewhere 07.08.

Those who sit at college radio boards at two o'clock in the morning will find their new favorite song in Color Tongue's "Adult Lessons", the latest from the band and the first single from their upcoming EP Bealing Bells. Why will sprouting DJs fall in love with the opening crescendo of syllables and pounding drums signifying oncoming fear and demise? Because, building on the band's visual album "Us and the Bugs" out last fall, "Adult Lessons" creates a bubble of emotion rife with fading screams. Then, the bubble bursts in a joyful prance of synth arpeggios and a relentless crashing drum beat, while the quartet's vocals sing a twelve-note refrain to the heavens. It's fine meditation music for a dimly lit radio studio or studio apartment late at night - or at any time of day, in fact. Bealing Bells hits the Internet later this summer, but you can catch Color Tongue live at Elsewhere's Zone One on July 8th. - Will Sisskind

Psych rockers Color Tongue release visual album "Us and the Bugs"

Technology continues to expand the realm of what's doable and psych rock bands such as Color Tongue take full advantage of the possibilities. While the Bushwick quartet's next LP doesn't come out until later in 2018, they've released a visual album in the meantime called Us and the Bugs, a YouTube video of four songs set to an ocular feast of clips of mashed-up old cartoons, found footage of landscapes, warped dancers in bubble suits, and of course, bugs. It should hold you over through the winter while you wait for the album to drop; just project the video on your wall, turn off all the lights, and bundle up in your warmest blankets for the full effect. Watch Us and the Bugs in full below. - Will Sisskind

Their latest release, Sprouts, is 8 tracks of inventive, sometimes atmospheric tracks, that while feeling expansive, ground itself with both its fun and infectious qualities.

Don't miss them live at The Knit on May 4th!

Also! Here's a list of the band's favorite emerging NYC bands!!!

Color Tongue unveil video for 'Sprout," play the Knit on 10.10

The Deli NYC is delighted to premiere this deliciously lo-fi and bizarrely sci-fi video of 'Sprout,' a recent single by our current Artist of the Month Color Tongue. The colorful, heavily tactile sequence of images perfectly matches the song's organic sound, based on a vivid amalgamation of Devo-esque synths, crunchy guitars, and vocals that straddle the line between '60s pop and avant-psych a la' Animal Collective. This is music in which fun, imagination and catchiness go hand in hand (in hand) - what else can you ask for? Oh right... a great live show! You'll have that on October 10th at The Knit!
