“A stark combination of elaborately arranged synths, bare-bones beats, and vaporous vocals, making for a 12-track set that lingers long after it fades into darkness.” –SPIN

“So, what’s the universe according to Color War like? It’s equal parts astrology, symbology, and philosophy; all set to shimmering synths and cascading vocals.” –INTERVIEW Magazine 

“Brooklyn duo Color War have an intriguingly dark sound, as represented on this new song from their forthcoming debut LP, It Could Only Be This Way. The menacingly glimmering synth work that lies below Lindsay Mound’s cresting vocals are reminiscent of the framework of Swedish fitted-hat-loving electro-pop outfit Kate Boy‘s “Northern Lights”, which is a very good thing.” –Pitchfork

“Color War make dark, moody synth pop that walks a fine line; it sounds like something you could expect to hear in a club, but also something that you could see being remixed by Xiu Xiu.” –Stereogum    

Today COLOR WAR streams its debut LP via SPIN. On March 7 they’ll celebrate the album’s release with a special show at Baby’s All Right w/ DOOMSQUAD and a DJ set from Prince Rama. The band just recently shared three remixes (from Xiu Xiu, DJ Clap and Absofacto) of it’s signature single “SOS” from its forthcoming album It Could Only Be This Way, which is out March 4 on the Four Horsemen label. Three extremely different takes from three of Color War’s favorite current artists,  you can hear Xiu Xiu’s at Stereogum, DJ Clap’s at AdHoc and Absofacto’s at The Music Ninja.
