Color The Night are on a mission to bring back the funk. The Austrian disco-pop band will release their debut single ‘Eyes Off You’ August 24. The single follows a summer of live appearances for the 6 piece band, who have been touring since they first formed in February of this year. Listen here
‘Eyes Off You’ is a perfect introduction to the band. The 80’s retro-synths might already have the listener shaking a leg but once the horns and furious funk-riffs kick in, held together with a plethora of electronic sounds, it’s impossible not to dance. Filled with riding disco-beats, driving guitars and funky riffs, Color The Night have found perfect symbiosis between dance and jazz.
Talking about their debut track, the band say: “Drop it all and dance into the night – hand in hand with your love on a magic carpet of music”.
Lead singer Paris Zinner and rhythm guitarist Michael Buchegger met backstage at a band contest in Austria and after forming a bond the pair decided to stay in touch. Multiple phone calls and emails lead to the two setting up in Michael’s home studio to discuss the possibilities of Paris’ solo career but once the duo had thrown around ideas, they discovered a musical connection between them that led to something much bigger. Hours were spent laying down beats and harmonies and by sunrise they had the first rough demo of ‘Eyes Off You.’ Michael, being a student of Jazz in Austria, brought in a few student friends to help out in rehearsals. The resulting relationships that devised between the six boys just couldn’t be left ignored and so in February 2018, Color The Night was born.
