The Flavr Blue Play the Late Show Tomorrow Night at Mercury Lounge

February 12th, 2016

More than three years ago, Hollis Wong-Wear (who sang the hook on Macklemore’s “White Walls”), Parker Joe and Lace Cadence met one another at local Seattle rap shows and began making music together shortly thereafter as the Flavr Blue. Their debut full-length, Pisces (stream it below), came out in 2012. And despite each member’s hip-hop pedigree, the dance-inspired LP skews toward club bangers rather than rap. On their most recent release, last fall’s EP Love Notes (stream it below), the Flavr Blue (above, doing “We Can Go Blind” for Sounds by the Sound) combine what KEXP FM calls “catchy songwriting and soaring harmonies with rich electronic production.” And with a new tour launched last night, they play the late show at Mercury Lounge tomorrow night.
