Doug Fir

Colony House is a fresh-faced trio from Franklin, Tennessee, whose sound is a seamless pastiche of Phoenix's bouncy faux-indie-pop, Coldplay's widescreen soft-rock, and Arcade Fire's all-together-now whoa-oh-whoa-ing. It's big beats, bigger hooks, and biggest feels from the latest in a recent line of handsome white pop-rock bands who seem to be materializing out of nowhere, ready to play arenas. (Think Bastille, American Authors, Kongos, and Rixton. Or don't.) Anyway, Colony House's single "Silhouettes" is so insidiously catchy, it just might have you rootin' for 'em to get that big breakthrough that is their birthright. If that doesn't work, maybe this cute post from their Facebook page will: "If any of you are unable to get into one of our shows due to an age restriction at the venue, bring five friends and we will do our best to play an acoustic set by our van after the show." Well, okay, that's pretty cool. (If that doesn't work, they're playing an all-ages in-store at Music Millennium on Monday, September 8.) BEN SALMON
