The Colour

After two failed runaway attempts as a kid, Wyatt Hull escaped Inman, Kansas, at 18 and made a beeline for Los Angeles. Two years later, in 2003, he helped found the Colour, an outfit that marries the brash firepower of the Stones with pearl-smooth atmospherics that’d make Brian Eno lift an eyebrow. Hull’s vocals could slice granite — no frayed edges here — as he conjures songs about vacillating between booze and redemption. The group is touring coast-to-coast to promote its debut, meaning Hull returns to Kansas on Sunday. This time, he comes home a rock star.
