Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our fifth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, once again presented by Verity Credit Union.

Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured artist is Coloring Electric Like.


Portland-based Coloring Electric Like combines the heavily effected guitar of shoegaze rock with synth-driven sounds and beats from trip-hop and industrial influences. Layers of guitar and multiple drum and synth loops have drive and edge, while a backdrop of lush synth and strings is sublimely orchestral. The result is a sonic landscape, with provocative female vocals. The duo produces a sound that is surprisingly big, with a haunting feel and danceable groove.

Today’s featured act delivers meticulously blended layers of sonic splendor, mixed with ethereal vocal stylings, resulting in a sound that will grab you instantly. Jarring synth and guitar infused riffs propel the tracks forward but seamlessly manage to get out of the way and let the dreamy vocals breathe when the time is right. Fans of shoegaze and industrial should find a lot to like about this duo. Check out “The Tree” HERE from June of this year.
