BRILLIANT COLORS began in early 2007 when singer / guitarist Jess Scott hooked up with East Coast transplants Diane Anastasio and Michelle Hill - a veteran of a number of Bay Area underground punk outfits, as well as touring guitarist for The Slits. Brilliant Colors hone songwriting to a fine edge, writing sharp, subtly catchy indie pop that finds them more assuredly rounding out the corners of their DIY punk-meets-Shop Assistants, '78-'86 pop collision. After sharing bills with fellow Bay Area acts Nodzzz, Grass Widow and Ty Segall, and opening for the likes of The Urinals and The Homosexuals, the band began to record their swoonsome power pop. Following up two sold-out singles on Make A Mess and Captured Tracks, plus mounting fervor from all corners of the pop underground blog-o-world, Brilliant Colors' debut album 'Introducing' dropped late last year and was undeniable contender for best pop record of 2009. New 7" 'Never Mine' was released on Slumberland too a week or so ago. Pick it up from the merch table for sure!
