The New Colors / Bio

The New Colors is a four-piece rock band from Victoria, BC. Drawing inspiration from anything that stimulates progressive thought patterns, The New Colors provide a healthy serving of retro-grunge rhythms carried by driving drumlines and topped off with a unique fusion of psychedelic blues. Lyrically provocative and vocally mesmerizing, frontman Scawt Polachuk is a physical embodiment of pure musical passion. Supported by the crunchy textures of rhythm guitarist Brandon Brown, fueled by the smooth melodies of bassist Cat Deighton, and brought to life by drummer Brad Schaaf's extraordinary transitions from classic jazzy beats to powerhouse percussion, The New Colors offer a brand new experience often described as "what would happen if Jimi Hendrix and the Doors played music sung by Kurt Cobain, written by a sarcastic Socrates and arranged by John Lennon after a ten-day diet consisting of LSD and coconuts".


In a society where information is so easily obtainable, lies are inevitable. In a society controlled by fear and media, corruption is inevitable. In a society governed by monsters and thieves, evil is inevitable. Question everything. Create new things, teach the young, recycle your plastic, befriend your neighbors, abolish your ego. Believe impossible things. Envision your own brand new color. Expand yourself.
