Crooked Colours are just enjoying the ride—duo dive into ‘Tomorrows’ tour, artistic origins after headlining The Fonda [Q+A]

On Saturday, October 22, Crooked Colours’ Phil Slabber and Liam Merrett-Park graced the stage at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theater for an electrifying performance in support of the group’s third studio album, Tomorrows. The September LP marks the Australian indie-electronic duo’s debut project under Atlantic Records; it consists of 13 infectious live-oriented recordings that have collectively amassed north of 30 million streams on Spotify alone. Upon completing a mesmerizing performance at The Fonda, chock-full of new selects from the album, reliable crowd favorites, and even an on-stage marriage proposal led by a friend of the artists, Crooked Colours sat down with Dancing Astronaut to unwind over a conversation about the group’s more humble beginnings and just how far they’ve come up to their current tour run in support of Tomorrows.
