Color Dolor have been perfecting their unique art pop sound in Helsinki, Finland since 2011. In present moment Color Dolor are Stina Koistinen and Nicolas 'Leissi' Rehn. They have released three singles from their up-coming 3rd album 'Love'. Singles 'Revolution, 'Anyway the Wind Blows' and 'Running in the Dark' have awaken much interest in the new Color Dolor sound among the critics and press. Color Dolor's 3rd album 'Love' looks at the universal theme of love from different angles: romantic love, platonic love love in society, not forgetting lovelessness and loneliness.
'Love' was released May 4th 2018 with Soliti.

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 two albums 'Cuckoo in a Clock' in 2013 and 'Wonderchild' in 2015.

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).

“Love is the third album by Finland's Color Dolor.
Offering elements of dream pop electronica R&B industrial and club music it is a delectable showcase for the craft of Stina Koistinen and Nicolas "Leissi" Rehn.
Adventurous and dynamic yet intimate the album looks at love at several levels and from several perspectives but never fails to delight and entertain.
It is a new musical approach for Color Dolor but we think that it should provide them with a chance of gaining a major audience.”
-When You Motor Away -blog

“Anyway The Wind Blows is simply like Massive Attack meets Radiohead in both of their golden periods plus a bit of dub added. Genious. It makes no sense how good it is. That’s all there is to analyze.”
- Päivän Biisit / Songs of the Day 9.3.2018, Aleksi Pahkala

“This song (Revolution) has momentum. I can imagine the joyful cacophony this song will illicit in so many clubs… In summary, great tune, magnificent joie de vivre. banger par excellence!”
-SWIT (Superworldindietunes)16.1.2018
