Darmstadt in Germany is known for a famous music academy, besides a rich cultural life. Now the city has developed a relatively new music artist, Colouring Rainbowes. The music is somewhere between spherical vocals, ambient soundscapes and modern metal with elements of post rock and often a experimental approach. The new album Moments is released now and can be heard at Bandcamp.
Colouring Rainbows started as an acoustic piano cover project has turned into a genre-bending experimental one-woman rock outfit. Over the years, the music has taken on various forms, ranging from post-rock through progressive metal to ambient sounds. Influences include bands and artists like Rosetta, Bjork, Bonobo, Jakub Zytecki, Jacob Collier, The Contortionist.
Jess is a singer first, but also plays the piano, guitar, bass and violin and weaves multilayered soundscapes. In 2010 and 2011, the songs were composed with live looping and Colouring Rainbows played some local shows in southern Germany. Ever since, Jess has been looking for the perfect form to take her music to the stage and has played some unplugged sets with acoustic versions of Colouring Rainbows songs.
