The Color Of Cyan‘s second studio album, “Egress,” is about time, time to know, time to love, time to feel pain and the constant learning that makes us who we are. The story of two people dancing on the tides, swaying together, until one of them begins to slowly disappear, in tears, enjoying the time left to make them stronger. Bittersweet minutes of sound fill the void, peering at their surroundings. Circles close, at ease, with a smile. After all, time is the constant pursuit of happiness.
“Similar to our first album, we wrote and structured the music like the arc of a film, with incidents, conflicts, climaxes and resolution. Our musical arrangements are deliberately in constant motion, driven by emotions, impossible to replicate perfectly, like the waves of the sea. Nothing is ever the same again.“
The Color Of Cyan create emotive instrumental music, seamlessly blending Cinematic Post-Rock, moving orchestral arrangements, Ambient and Post-Metal. The band’s original line-up formed in 2000 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the project re-emerged exclusively instrumental, with intricate soundscapes and aggressive guitars. The band’s debut ‘Agape’ is a layered album, building up pressure and impact as it heads straight for monolithic detonation. With “Egress,” their second studio album, The Color Of Cyan once again blur the boundaries of genre labels, exploring introspective emotions through delicate layers.
“Egress incorporates the pursuit of happiness, no matter the obstacles in life.“
