History

Brothers Tohm and Jonathan Ifergan’s childhood began in Mexico City before moving to the United States as kids. After years of trying to play with his older brother, Tohm finally got a chance when Jonathan’s band Color Radio was in need of a keyboardist. After two members left, a work friend and classically-trained pianist, Matt Thomas added ambient textures and effects whiel Joel Chasco added bass to the pop backbone. The initial connection of the band required Tohm to switch from keyboard to drums.[1]

Chicago Sun Times' Jim DeRogatis described Color Radio as "dedicated to exploring a subtle, nuanced, introspective and alternately uplifting and haunting sound that evokes national indie acts such as The Appleseed Cast and The Album Leaf"[2]. The band has also been compared to indie acts Broken Social Scene, Jeff Tweedy, and Grizzly Bear.[3]
