Song of the Day: This Whole Nothing – Color Theory

Featuring lyrical ambiguities with electronic embellishments and gently rolling synths, Brian Hazard – aka – synthwave act COLOR THEORY’s ‘This Whole Nothing’, creates a world of nostalgically transfigured memories which allow the listener to place their own emotions into the music.

“This Whole Nothing” is one of those songs that people will read into as they will. The lyrics are just vague enough to be universal. My inspiration was the spacious emptiness one experiences when the voice of the mind quiets and the world can be seen as it truly is.” – Color Theory

Generating nearly three million plays across streaming platforms, Color Theory has received significant support on YouTube, having been picked up by renowned channels such as NewRetroWave, The ’80s Guy, LuigiDonatello and SoulSearchAndDestroy.  Winning the grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, having three songs featured in the Just Dance video game series and two in the Rock Band video game series, plus several song placements on MTV’s The Real World, are just some of Color Theory’s notable achievements.

Their EP possess a conducive yet groovy production, coming together with small interesting echoing elements throughout the four tracks. ‘Yuri’ shines out amongst the tracks, with an  frantic pace set to a waterfall of electronic sounds, without it becoming too overwhelming or messy to the prospective listener.

Based in California and Los Angeles respectively, Farr and Welch met in their teens and would go to endless festivals together, teaching each other about music production throughout the years. They both played the guitar as youngsters and later fell in love with electronic music through early rave culture. They eventually decided to collaborate and released their first single as Esofact in 2014. ‘I’ve Got That’ was groundbreaking and began to define ‘future’ as a new way of approaching musical compositions….
