From playing their first show in the basement of Thurston hall, their freshman dorm, The Colonies have progressed to becoming a one of a kind act performing and opening at the 9:30 club, DC9, Black Cat, and Songbyrd. This 4 piece Washington DC band comprising of Pete Stevens on guitar and vocals, Joey Mamlin on drums, Jordan Mullaney on bass and Dylan Trupiano on guitar have been inspired by indie rock from the early 2000s and wear their influences on their sleeve. Their songs have been described as “hooky indie rock with contagious charm” from blogs like Obscure Sound. With two albums out and a third on the way, this is a band to keep your eye on.
