Brand new Brooklyn-based trio, Everything Turned To Color
, release their sophomore single, "Once Upon A Lifetime," from their forthcoming, debut album, Life Imagined
, due out June 23rd 2017
. Atwood Magazine
, who premiered the track, says, "A melody with the easygoing, nonchalant attitude of a She & Him tune disguises a lament for more time with a lost friend," and adds, "The trio’s closing verse is particularly powerful, as they lay the foundation for honoring the memory of their friend through action – carrying on the “effervescent love” that was lost, through the instilling of such values in the next generation."
The upcoming 11-track LP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Blake Morgan at ECR Music Studios in NYC. The back-to-back Album Preview sets scheduled for March 31st at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC have both sold-out already.
Everything Turned To Color includes brothers Bryan and Kyle Weber, two ex-alt-rock bandmates who co-own DIY tour booking website IndieOnTheMove.com (which services nearly 100K members) and their classically trained neighbor, Neha Jiwrajka, who left a tech job at Google to pursue a Masters in Jazz and vocal performance (her mother is a classically trained Hindustani singer). Starting March 25th, the trio will hit the road for a 24-date tour through NY, CA, PA, VT, MA, ME, CT and NJ.
Inspired largely in part by Bryan and Kyle's foray into parenthood, Life Imagined plays heavily on the bittersweet dualities of life and the big questions we all must ask. While much of the music exudes a whimsical lightheartedness in mood and melody, the lyrics dive deep into the fragility and innocence of childhood, the significance of enduring friendship, and the inevitable moments of love and loss that haunt us all.
The band's debut single, "When You Wish Me There", is out now. Dedicated to Bryan’s son and daughter, "When You Wish Me There" is a retrospective analysis of life’s major milestones, and what they mean in the afterlife. The vibe of the song is very innocent, dreamy even, as it sifts through the trivialities of memory to focus on the one thing that always matters most in the end - the love that a parent feels for his/her child.
