Indie Alternative Rockers The Color Blew are back with their new Single and Lyric Video ‘Love In Space’, an energetic, upbeat earworm in praise of the excitement of romance.
Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) shares that “When we started our new round of writing, I decided not to force lyrics or sounds, and just let the music happen. This is the first result of that process, and I am in love with our current space!”
Armando Santos (Drums) adds that “We all need that ‘loving space’ we can relate to. This is a different genre for The Color Blew, but we are all excited, and can relate to this song!”
Timothy Lotter (Lead Guitar) concludes that “For me the process of creating ‘Love In Space’ has been blissful serendipity!”

The Color Blew Bio
The Color Blew represents depth and insight in a sea of over-produced, shallow, commercial music. They provide the “alternative” where talent and passion merge with meaning and sound – a place free from preconceived notions of how music should sound. They often find discerning audience members getting lost in moments of deep listening, mesmerised by the artful sound and impassioned performance, unaware of what is happening around them. They work hard in the studio, play hard on stage, and strive for consummate professionalism, no matter the occasion.
While The Color Blew has been together since 2014, their combined years of band experience total over 65 years. They are are a four piece outfit consisting of Liaan Horton (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar) Marius Cronje (Bass Guitar) Timothy James Lotter (Lead Guitar) Armando Santos (Drums). They are based in the East Rand of Gauteng, South Africa, where they rehearse, create, record and produce their music in their own studio located in Springs.
Asking them to categorise their sound into one sub-genre of Rock music would be like asking a painter to use only one colour paint. Their music could be broadly considered Alternative Rock, but there are many more nuances. Their core material is heavily coloured by Grunge and Punk, and can be found on their debut album: THE CANVAS. Their newer music brings in the bright hues of Jazz and African beats, blended with meaningful lyrics. This is evident from their sophomore release LIGHT SWITCH.
In 2022 The Color Blew paid tribute to the immortal Queen and David Bowie with their rendition of UNDER PRESSURE that charted on the SA TOP 40 and several International Indie Charts. All in all, The Color Blew strives to create an evolving, distinctive sound on the vast canvas of South African music!
