Color DolorBeautiful + Experimental

Color Dolor have been perfecting their unique art pop sound in Helsinki, Finland since 2011. The Finnish media has baptized them as “future megastars” (NYT 33/2012), and “their sound is something completely unheard of” according to Rumba (3/2013). Color Dolor will release their third album in Autumn 2017.

Their second album Wonderchild, released in 2015 is about living a life full of love, in the face loneliness and death. A polished pop record of huge dynamic contrasts and beautiful songwriting, it garnered rave reviews from the press in Finland. “Color Dolor is one of the most interesting Finnish bands. Magical.” Rumba 28.2.2015

Color Dolor create a unique, musical experience both live and on record, having played over 60 gigs in Finland, Estonia, Norway and Sweden. They opened for St. Vincent in 2014 and for Susanne Sundfør in August 2015, both in Helsinki. Konkurssi Records released their first single (What Is Left?) and album (Cuckoo in a Clock) in 2013.
