Song Premiere: The Colonies’ ‘Do Nothing With Me’

Searching for a summer song to crank up? The Colonies’ jangly “Do Nothing With Me” is a strong candidate.

Making its premiere on Pauseandplay.com, the D.C. indie rockers’ new single is a preview of what’s ahead for the band led by Joey Mamlin and Pete Stevens.

“We have released three albums already, the last being ‘Bound to Be Something Good’ released in February,” Stevens tells P&P. ” ‘Do Nothing With Me’ is a song we wrote shortly after the release and we wanted to record/release it during the summer because we felt it had summery vibes perfect for the season. The new music we’re writing is upbeat and tightly arranged like “Do Nothing With Me” yet not necessarily as brightly toned.”

The group formed at George Washington University. After losing two members to graduation, Stevens and Mamlin cut the song on their own: with Malin drumming and playing bass, while Stevens played guitar and did the vocals.

“We’ve all just graduated college and are working day jobs,” Stevens says. “Eventually, we would love to make music our full-time profession, but it’s hard work to get to that point. Until then, we’re making music we love and chugging along.”
