Colour Tongues//

Since their inception, Colour Tongues have taken hits and weathered storms, both literally and figuratively, and they’re still alive to tell the story.  Boasting a nurse, a carpenter, an actor, and a dog walker, the band combines elements of math and progressive rock with dreamy indie pop.  
James Challis, Colour Tongue’s singer and guitarist is an Australian native whose father was a high ranking member of the Sahaja Yoga cult in the early 80's and 90's. Thankfully for Challis, his mother got the kids out.    
As a child, Challis would bang his head on his pillow every night before bed. When his mother asked him why he answered: "I'm banging on my pillow to a song I have in my head". Instead of ADHD pills, he was given a guitar.
As a young musician, Challis was in awe when introduced to Transatlanticism and Plans by Death Cab for Cutie.  Inspired by the poetry and imagery in the lyrics, and the songwriting relationship between Chris Walla and Ben Gibbard, Challis was determined to form his own band. 
Over the next couple of years Challis leaned heavily into music and moved to Vancouver where he met bass player Dan Lavergne via craigslist.  The two clicked musically and began writing together, forming the band Colour Tongues with two other musicians: Hamish Miller (guitar) and John Bazuick (drums).  The band recorded a self-titled EP before Bazuick and Miller left due to internal strife.  Challis and Lavergne, their bond now stronger than ever, continued, committed to finding the right musicians to complete their vision for Colour Tongues.
