“This band first made a blip on Flagpole's radar during the Spring Showdown at the 40 Watt Club earlier this month, which was immediately followed by three more gigs in town, including a couple benefit shows at New Earth. It seems like this group of mostly UGA Music Business Program students has quickly found its niche in the jam and dance scene. There's a good bit of synth, care of Matt Lewis (not to be confused with Mat Lewis of Grape Soda fame), plus some real funky bass grooves from Ben Consuegra which even venture in disco territory on tracks like "And the Days Turn to Weeks" before swirling out into more psychedelic waters. Jordan White's vocals are sort of thin and quirky, giving the tunes a more indie vibe than you'd expect, and his guitar adds a alternative rock edge on tracks like "Fandango." Adding depth and an organic pulse behind the samples is drummer Danny Zagoria. If that sounds like your kind of groove, check out the demos up at reverbnation.com/chromazone.”
“Chromazone may be a collaboration, but their music is catching on. Already, fans know "Whammy," one of the guys' favorites to play. Originally written by White, each of the members added something to it and the result is something distinctly Chromazone... Feeding off each other's energy, as well as the energy of their new band manager Gillian Furqueron, the band has high hopes for the summer. The plan to spend the next few months writing and continuing to play gigs... Recognizing that the "electronic-fused funk rock" may be a genre that Athens is still getting used to, Zagoria explains, "Quality product goes a long way."”
“The members of Chromazone are more than just another Athens band. They are a musical family. Originally formed in February, the band started playing shows through the music business program at the University. As the band continues to evolve, it has brought forth a strong blend of general rock instruments and electronics. “We’re trying to think like 2011 in the broad terms, try to add in things like the sampler, mix boards and Ableton,” vocalist and guitarist Jordan White said. “My dad calls it Pink Floyd of the 21st century.” It is that confidence which gives the band its swagger. In a short time span, the group has played several Athens shows, released demos and performed at the Allegreen Music Festival.”
