About Us

recording in the bathroom

Joy With Colors are two multi instrumentists making spontaneous and melodic songs, which build imagery belonging to the listeners imagination. Their pop music has a strange nonchalant feel, making the sun brighter and slowing time down.

Video

About the videos :
Joy With Colors got some old 9.5mm rolls of film, abandoned in a cottage house's attic in the south of France. Those images were shot in the 50′s by a movie lover who died 17 years ago. Thanks to him, and with a little help from friends, Joy With Colors made a video out of it, for their song "Hello Starters". They feel honoured to give those images a new life.
