COLORGUARD is the long running project of Kryssi Battalene. In her formative days Battalene employed an arsenal of rickety tape machines, fan-motor-modified turntables, slabs of shellac, and various home-made electronics. Since the mid 2000s Colorguard has released on such esteemed imprints as Fag Tapes, Alien Passengers, Gilgongo Records, and Male Bonding.
Battalene also finds herself playing in a variety rock projects. Whether it’s her lead guitar duties in New Haven stalwarts Mountain Movers, strumming through the outsider punkness of Medication, leading her psych/noise project Headroom, or taking on any number of side projects, Battalene’s entrancing leads always shine through. Now finding cohesion somewhere between her noise roots and psychedelic guitar meditations Battalene has brought Colorguard to all new territory.
