King’s Kaleidoscope is a faith-based chamber pop band from Seattle, Washington. Led by singer/songwriter Chad Gardner, the group formed in 2010 at a church plant where Gardner was a worship leader. Looking for a big, orchestral indie pop sound, he slowly assembled the ten-piece group, handpicking players from within the church and developing their lush sound a bit more every week. Sporting a variety of influences from math rock and hip-hop to the dense sound of Canadian indie outfit Broken Social Scene, King’s Kaleidoscope recorded their first live EP, Sin, in 2011. A year later, the studio EP Asaph’s Arrows arrived, and in late 2012 they issued the Christmas-themed EP Joy Has Dawned. In early 2013, Gardner and the band announced they were leaving the church where they had been both worship leaders and artists on the church’s label. Their fourth EP, 2014’s Live in Color, was released by Bad Christian Records, a label formed by Seattle post-hardcore band Emery. Working with both Bad Christian and well-established indie Tooth & Nail, King’s Kaleidoscope finally issued their debut LP, Becoming Who We Are, in November 2014.
