The Color Of Cyan’s second studio album, »Egress«, is about time, time for knowledge, for love, for pain and for the constant learning that makes us who we are. The story of two people dancing over tides, gliding together, until the heaviness of a coming end struck one of them, but even in tears, enjoying the time left is what make them stronger. Bittersweet minutes of sound filling the void, scanning our surroundings. Closing circles, at ease, with a smile. After all, time is the constant pursuit of happiness.

»Egress«​ was produced by Eduardo Cintron. Recorded at Padrino (San Juan, PR), DF (Chicago, IL) and Electrical Audio (Chicago, IL). Mixed by Greg Norman at Electrical Audio. Mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound. Artwork by Yasin Violet. Photos by Herminio Rodriguez.

The Color Of Cyan creates emotive instrumental music, seamlessly merging cinematic post-rock, moving orchestral arrangements, ambient, and post-metal. The original iteration of the band was formed in 2000 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the project reemerged solely instrumental, with intricate soundscapes and aggressive guitars. Soon after, the band started writing their first full-length album »Agape«, a multi-layered album that patiently builds in pressure and impact while heading squarely toward monolithic detonation. With »Egress«, the second studio album, The Color Of Cyan, once again blurs the boundaries of their post, metal, and Neo-classical labels by exploring introspective emotions through delicate layering.

“Our music arrangements are purposely in constant motion, guided by emotions, impossible to replicate perfectly, like waves in the sea. Nothing is ever the same as before.”
