The Color of Cyan still can be considered as a new band with only two years of active period in their careers. But the significant thing about them would be that they deserve all the respect with their solid vision, powerful theme, world-class production, and professional branding.
Their debut album, which is also their latest release Agape is an instrumental ambient/post-rock album with additionally progressive rock influences and a huge soundtrack potential. First of all, the album has the necessary technical standards in its recording and mix, immediately makes an impact on the listener with its solid sound. I can also hear the effort in terms of developing their own sound and agreeing with all their decisions so far. The Color of Cyan is simply on the right way of becoming recognizable with it.
Agape music video, on the other hand, also deserves credit for its impressive production and filming. This is one of the best-looking music videos I have seen for a while now, especially from a new and independent band.
Musically, I hear some of my personal favorite bands in Agape’s origins such as Anathema, and two Steven Wilson projects Blackfield and Porcupine Tree. In terms of compositions, Agape has similarities with Pink Floyd‘s early golden releases. Every song tells us different stories with the same irresistible dramatic energy within. Apparently, The Color of Cyan focuses mainly on the overall vibe of the album rather than giving us more of their progressive rock side, which makes them even more interesting. As I have mentioned earlier, Agape can be a goldmine for those who are looking for dreamy-sounding dramatic music for their movies.
