In a relatively brief span of time, Colony House has emerged as a vibrant creative force, as well as a beloved fan favorite with a passionate, fiercely loyal fan base. That audience is likely to expand substantially with the release of When I Was Younger, the Nashville, TN trio's first full-length album, whose 14 compelling original tunes fulfill the abundant promise of the band's three widely-acclaimed, self-released EPs.
It's not surprising that Colony House has struck a resonant chord with listeners. The threesome maintains a balance of craft and immediacy that reflects its affinity for the sound of such alt-rock outfits as Interpol and The Killers, while echoing the influence of such alternative icons as U2 and New Order. They've assimilated their multiple influences in a manner that's wholly distinctive, adding tight harmonies, strong instrumental chops and a keen melodic sensibility that's all their own.
Knox Hamilton is an indie pop band from Little Rock, Arkansas. The band was originally formed in the mid 2000's by brothers Boots and Coby Copeland and their best friend, Brad Pierce. Drew Buffington, guitar, joined the band in 2009. To date, Knox Hamilton has released three EPs; one each year since 2011.
Their first release, The Sirocco EP, earned the band local support as an up-and- coming indie band in Arkansas. After the release of The Sirocco EP, Knox Hamilton immediately began writing songs for a new EP. The sophomore EP, So Far Safari, was released almost exactly a year later in the summer of 2012. The response to So Far Safari was invigorating, and the guys from Knox Hamilton knew they were on the right sonic path. The transition period between the first two EPs allowed for a lot artistic growth, and fans, old and new, definitely took note. In November of 2013, Knox Hamilton released The Great Hall EP, their most popular EP to date.
