Color Green – So Far Behind

Color Green is back with the smoothly mellow “So Far Behind.”

Color Green is a Californian cosmic folk rock group fronted by Noah Kohll and Corey Madden, and their dreamy debut EP was one of the top releases of the last year. On their new single, their production may be a little more polished, but the band sounds just as hazy and covered in desert dust as ever.

“So Far Behind” is a sweetly laidback country rocker with cool, velvety harmonies and a generous dose of sweet pedal steel guitar. Drummer Richard Gowen helps to make this track the quintessential single that it is with his driving beat which keeps the band cruising along sleekly like a souped-up Cadillac.

Despite clocking in at just under four minutes, this single features the band jamming tightly around the verses with a great amount of focus that somehow still allows a great sense of looseness. This just makes any listener crave to hear Color Green’s live sound even more.

If records by the late-period Byrds, Rose City Band and Hiss Golden Messenger are what you’ve been finding yourself reaching for these days, then you’ll surely love “So Far Behind.” Click here to get your digital copy today.
