Are they an "indie" band? A "new-new-wave" band? Whatever tag one wants to place on them, this Pittsburgh-based outfit is rapidly gaining international recognition for their catchy melodies and moody energy. It's not difficult to trace the band's influences: everything from the Smiths to the Cure to the Psychedelic Furs are present in SCS's unique mix. In all, Seven Color Sky has a sound like no other band today -- warm, dreamy, full of 80's romanticism and modern energy. The band's modern rock angle on a classic new-wave vibe has attracted not only a score of loyal music fans but also bona fide icons -- namely John Ashton, long-time guitarist for 80's legends the Psychedelic Furs ("Pretty In Pink," "Heartbreak Beat"), who produced their latest release. The band's involvement with Ashton arose from a mutual respect: John was already a fan of the first SCS album, the 10-song "Secrets About the Stars," and was further wowed when Seven Color Sky opened two Pittsburgh-area shows for the Furs. After their opening set at the 2004 Three Rivers Arts Festival, John and the band discussed the possibilities of working together. As Ashton recalls, "I was walking around sort of listening to these guys play. They'd just come on and I was way...in the back. And I thought, 'This sounds really cool.' So after the show I said, 'Hey, you guys sound really great' and the rest in history!" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 10-23-04). The resulting body of work, the "Better Looking" EP, contains four lush, dreamy, radio-ready tunes featuring layers of vintage synths and shimmering guitars, poppy bass and drums, and tongue-in-cheek vocals. SCS formed in the Summer of 2002, a collaboration between vocalist / guitarist Scott Bedillion, bassist Marc Turina, and synth magician Terry Divelbliss. Recently signing on: drummer Frank Postava, who replaced the departing Carmen Bruno. Over it's two-plus year existance, the band's sound has become bigger, more distinct, and always evolving. It's dream pop with an edge. Listen and get hooked!
