Biography

Cardiff, Wales (2008 – present)

1. Colorama are a British psychedelic pop band formed in Cardiff, Wales in 2008 - the brainchild of Carwyn Ellis, the respected multi-instrumentalist & producer who has performed or collaborated with the likes of Edwyn Collins, Oasis, UNKLE, Shane MacGowan, James Hunter, Lay Low, Gemma Ray, The Pretenders and The 2 Bears to name just a few.

Colorama’s debut album ‘Cookie Zoo’ received a Japan release to giddy critical acclaim, and their first single, ‘Sound’ was an instant psych pop wonder - a perfect introduction into a sonic world you won’t wanna leave.

‘Magic Lantern Show’, featuring songs in Welsh and English was released in 2009 summer with ‘Dere Mewn’ becoming a modern classic in Wales and garnering rave reviews and lots of airplay on both sides of the border. Described as ‘incredible’ by Huw Stephens and hailed a ‘Soft Psych Classic’ by Sean Rowley, Magic Lantern Show was championed by Marc Riley, Adam Walton, Bethan Elfyn, Gideon Coe and all of their releases have been enthusiastically received with extensive radio play on XFM, BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1 & BBC Radio Wales.

The band started playing together in early July 2008 and have since played Glastonbury Festival, Latitude Festival, Home Game, The Sŵn Festival, Port Eliot Festival, Truck Festival, National Eisteddfodau, the Green Man Festival and many more.

In the autumn of 2010, Colorama released their third album BOX on Noise McCartney / Bad News Records (Victor Entertainment) in Japan and via See Monkey Do Monkey Recordings in UK. Shortly afterwards, they released a Christmas single, ‘Cerdyn Nadolig’ (‘Christmas Card’) which garnered them the Welsh Christmas Number 1 on the BBC Radio Cymru chart.
