The dawn of ColourSurround can be traced back to a dorm room at Carleton University, a Verve record, and countless hours of musical consumption. Back then in 2004, would-be frontman Maciej Walinski spent every waking moment that he wasnt in class—or attempting to meet co-eds—listening to music, playing guitar and writing lyrics about girls, personal experiences, and ideologies that only a freshman academic could truly take seriously. It was in those days that Walinski decided to form a band, and that it would be called ColourSurround
Fast forward nearly a decade later, and a move on a whim to Vancouver, BC. Walinski, through various acquaintances met brilliant bassist Jerry Ocol, uber-talented Allan Carruthers, and the human metronome that is Trevor Baldry. The three shared a taste for driven beats, melodic riffs, and ambient textures, and thus ColourSurround came to be as it is known today.
