Horse Thief signed a deal with Bella Union Records in 2013, making them label mates with indie rock favorites Beach House, Fleet Foxes and fellow Oklahomans The Flaming Lips.

Earlier this week, Stillwater band Colourmusic released their new album, May You Marry Rich, via British label Memphis Industries. It’s their third full-length and showcases the band’s perpetual shift in sound.

When I first met Colourmusic, they were a five piece and often dressed in matching white jumpsuits. They were a whimsical band that often used gimmicks in their live show. These gimmicks included a satire on the modern American family, where band members dressed as a father, mother, son, daughter and uncle.

Singer Daniel Pruitt and guitarist Garrett Hellman grew up in Stillwater from an early age. They played in the band Shiloh Fivecoat and both went to Oklahoma State University – Daniel studied English and Garrett studied Electrical Engineering.
