Spybar welcomes Cubicolor’s Sometime Not Now US Tour to Chicago on Friday February 10 2023.

A powerful sense of alchemy is at the heartbeat of Cubicolor; a fusion that finds its own unique sweet spot between the intimacy of your headphones and the introspection of the dancefloor. Somewhere between a band and an electronic act, between traditional song-writing and profound levels of studio innovation, between electronica and indie.

Ariaan, Peter and Tim, a Dutch/Anglo trio hailing from vastly diverse backgrounds, all neck-deep in different disciplines, all with very successful previous musical endeavours behind them; each artist brings an entirely different perspective, talent and set of inspirations to Cubicolor’s unique, electronic melting pot.

The trio has a unique dynamic and rich histories; Ariaan and Peter were previously known as 16Bit Lolitas, a hugely accomplished and respected headline act in the house and techno world throughout the 2000s. They’ve been writing and performing together since their early 20s in the centre of Amsterdam.

Londoner Tim, a poet and playwright with a background in folk music, his distinctive falsetto countering the warm, dreamy soundscapes and arrangements with a haunting sense of tenderness and yearning. Tim also plays a role in the production just as much as he does as a singer.

Somewhere between a cooperative and a collaboration, complementary and contrast, contemporary and customary… The Cubicolor alchemy continues.
