LOVECOLOR is the new musical project of Ryan Carnes (Desperate Housewives, Cupid for Christmas, Doctor Who) and singer, songwriter and producer Vanessa Silberman. Today the band is pleased to share their debut single “Dangerous and its accompanying video which was directed by Cosmos Kiindarius. LOVECOLOR says, “Director, Cosmos Kiindarius was extremely instrumental in making the music come to life visually. We sent him the song, and he came back to us with a pitch that was very reminiscent in tone and in the spirit of the original BLADERUNNER film, of which we’re both fans.  It’s a groundbreaking piece of cinema that has become beloved by so many over the years. We instantly connected with his take, and we thought it fit very well with some of the nascent ideas we had for the piece.”
Dangerous” draws upon inspirations from pop alternative to synth-driven new wave, with darker undertones that are akin to bands like Chvrches and M83. Accompanying the music are vulnerable, velvety vocals that intimately draw in the listener, with countless hooks that are sure to inspire. “Dangerous” was written, produced, recorded & mastered by Vanessa Silberman, co-produced by Ryan Carnes and mixed by Andrew Dawson (Jay Z, Phantogram, Sleigh Bells, Linkin Park).

The band’s Vanessa Silberman says, “‘Dangerous’ is about a few things – one being attraction and being so completely drawn to someone that it’s almost dangerous, in a way. On the other hand, its message is really about exposing your entire self and being completely fearless and vulnerable, by embracing every aspect of who you are. It’s about being free and open with your sensuality — not suppressing any aspect of yourself, your desire or your sexuality. Growing up I think parts of me felt unable to be open and almost sexually suppressed, so I want to empower people (especially women), to fully embrace their whole true selves. I think that’s the most powerful and dangerous thing you can do.”  
On the song, co-producer and drummer Ryan Carnes adds, “To me, ‘Dangerous’ speaks to the idea of being fully awake, aware, alive and sharp in a world where parts of society and culture wish us to remain dull and asleep.”

Vanessa Silberman and Ryan Carnes are a musical force of sultry alt pop, dark synth, dance and rock sounds centered around exploring the many aspects of love. The pair officially teamed up in 2019 and launched LOVECOLOR in November 2022. Both have a long list of credits and together create undeniably catchy songs and deliver energetic powerful live shows, drawing comparisons to the rawness of Sinead O’Connor, the pop appeal of The 1975 and Chvrches, to the vocal qualities of Lana Del Ray, and confidence of St. Vincent.
