|Bonnaroo Montage: 10am and 3pm hours today. Two days left!!!|
This band Washington D.C. band is called RDGLDGRN(pronounced Red Gold Green). They been on the D.C. scene for a little while and this could be the year they break out into the rest of America. One big reason...Dave Grohl. He drums on the album. When Dave helps a band out, people take notice. Here's more on how they got Dave and Pharrell with this bit from MTV. Also, check out the video at the bottom too with their new song "I Love Lamp".
The aesthetic seems simple enough: The three members of Reston, Va.’s RDGLDGRN wear their favorite colors all day, every day. Red, the band’s guitarist, wears red clothing; Gold, the bassist, wears nothing but gold; and Green, the keyboardist and frontman, wears green at all times. From there, it gets a little hazy, though. The band members say they live their lives as colors and want the world to exist as one giant rainbow. Their music is an ambitious mixture of breezy island rhythms, garage rock and go-go — the homegrown sound of nearby Washington, D.C. RDGLDGRN (pronounced Red, Gold, Green) will release its debut EP this month and a full-length album this summer. Hive spoke with the up-and-coming band about its influences, color philosophy, and working with Dave Grohl and Pharrell.
