Color Film sees the duo of Daryl Palumbo and Richard Penzone recontextualizing their shared set of influences into a wholly new sonic amalgam that's unmistakably familiar, yet simultaneously shimmers in a way you've never heard before. It's not a reinvention so much as it is a brave progression for this twosome whose collective musical resume includes a myriad of culture-driving projects that have created waves in the music scene. The story of Color Film began six years ago when Palumbo and Penzone united for some scheduled live dates. Palumbo explains,"The two of us probably share more interests than anyone else I've ever met in my life and there are all these wild, arty records that we both love so it only made sense for us to sit down and try to channel that into something new." "There's the pop thing, a lot of synthesizer sounds, sampled instruments and smooth bass and I feel so lucky that we're in a place where we can write this type of music." The duo are the first to admit that the influences and music on Living Arrangements may be less straight-forward than their previous projects but when you consider what informed the album, it makes perfect sense.
