With a layered pop sound that sometimes recalls Death Cab for Cutie and Snow Patrol, Republic Tigers has been around for a few years under various names and members. It's the first band to be signed to Chop Shop Records, owned by Alexandra Patsavas, who has worked as the music supervisor for television shows such as The O.C. and Grey's Anatomy.

Republic Tigers' Keep Color mixes synthesizers and acoustic instrumentation, resulting in a sound that's altogether organic.
