The new wave revival single "Mirror Ball" and a debut EP, Out and About with the Colour, both featured tightly wound rhythms, jittery guitar riffs, and a vocal style from Hull. When both releases failed to generate any buzz, the Colour split with Lizard King and completely refashioned themselves. The Colour reappeared in 2006 as a '70s-vintage boogie outfit, with Hull bypassing his earlier vocal role models in favor of a white-boy-blooze sound closer to Mick Jagger. The Colour signed with the aptly named Rethink imprint of EMI and released their second EP, Devil's Got a Holda Me, in the summer of 2006, with the full-length debut Between Earth and Sky following in the fall. On 6 June 2007 the band announced on their webpage that, whilst they remain friends, they had decided to "turn a new page" and move on from the band. Wyatt Hull is now fronting the Ventura, CA based Cheetahsaurus, While the rest of the band has gone on to create/inspire with their band, We Barbarians.
