Explode Into Colors: Grand Finale

Tonight marks the end of an era for one of Portland’s most beloved bands, Explode Into Colors. The all lady trio will perform their last grand shebang at the Portland Mercury‘s 10 Year Anniversary Party tonight at Rotture.

Explode Into Colors were quickly becoming a favorite among the Portland scene. Noted for their off kilter song arrangements and primal percussive shows – often spawning their audience to dance in tongues – it seemed like the band was on the yellow brick road towards national success. The trio opened for the legendary Raincoats – whom one could assume had influenced their sound greatly – won Willamette Week’s “Best New Band” in 2009, went on a national tour supporting Quasi and recently was signed to the renowned Kill Rock Stars.

With so much on their side, we wish they would just kiss and make up.

No official statements have been made by the members of Explode Into Colors regarding the reasons behind their disbandment.
