Like gently sliding into a flotation tank, Colyer take you on a dreamy drift through the atmosphere of the mind. Limbs hanging in a weightless, heavy-lidded state. ‘Pet Names’ is soul music through a shoegaze filter, opened up to the cosmos and set free to wander.
“This song wrote itself, basically visceral vomit. I had come out of a four year relationship wanting to focus on myself. Still, cooped up in my tiny Hollywood apartment, I missed the intimacy and company of someone else. Anyone else.”
Colyer is the eponymous project of musician Steven Colyer. As a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, he wrote and recorded every element of his upcoming debut album. Drawing inspiration from 60s soul, 90s shoegaze, and everything in-between. Born in the South, raised in the Midwest, and now in Los Angeles, his voice and innate vulnerability are both approachable and original. Currently you can also listen to ‘Tired Of Blue‘ the first single off of Colyer’s forthcoming album.
