Audio File with The Hue

By Cristina Aguirre

Some songs stick in a listener’s head because of their simplicity and charm, but that is not so with The Hue. The band’s complex interlace of dueling guitars and wordless verses sets the hook while its clear melodies keep listeners tuned in. The progressive four-person band features two guitarists, Jared Rabin and Marcus Rezak, drummer Brian Gilmanov and bassist Kyle Meyers. Three of the band members met at their alma mater, Berklee College of Music. Rabin was a later addition, but grew up in the same Illinois suburbs as the others.

The Columbia Chronicle’s Assistant Arts & Culture editor, Cody Prentiss, recently sat down with Rabin and Rezak of The Hue to get the story behind the band and how The Hue creates its intricate melodies.
