Chromatic's Accidental Band Names

Unsuspectingly, the team has been sharing bands with me for over a year.

With noses to the grindstone, our team and our clients speak and write in vocabularies that, when pulled into an unfamiliar context, are dynamic music groups poised to go platinum.

We’ve all had the fleeting, “great band name” thought. A little over a year ago, so many candidates were crossing my path, that I was compelled to start capturing them in a list. Whether plucked from Slack threads, meeting notes or snatched from the soundwaves of unsuspecting meetings, these are all actual phrases that have been uttered by Chromaticians.

When I notice that it’s a particularly stressful or heavy day for the team, I drop the latest list into Slack to lighten things up.

We could all use a lighter and brighter 2021, so what better time to debut Chromatic’s accidental band names for our friends? Here’s to a rockin’ 2021.
