Bosnian Rainbows is the only studio album by American alternative rock band Bosnian Rainbows, released on June 24, 2013 on Clouds Hill, Sargent House and Rodriguez-Lopez Productions. Recorded and produced by Johann Scheerer, the album was recorded at Clouds Hill Studios in Hamburg, Germany in October 2012, during a break in band's touring schedule.

Bosnian Rainbows debuted at #2 on Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.[8]


Bosnian Rainbows was produced on analog gear, without the use of computers.[9][10]

Critical reception

Reviews were mixed; Rolling Stone said the album was impressive as an "art rock abnegation" but said they were left wanting more "excess" after Lopez's restrained New Wave style riffs on tracks like Morning Sickness.[11] NPR called every song on the album "catchy and anthemic" with a "cryptic" lyrical style compared to Tori Amos.[12] Combining upbeat melodies with "hints of melancholy", Teri Gender Bender's vocals have been compared to David Bowie.[13]


The album's first single, "Torn Maps", was digitally released on January 25, 2013.[14][15][16] The second single, "Turtle Neck" followed on February 11, 2013.[17]
