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.

Alternative Pop Newcomer Lilac Spirit Shares Single, ‘Nothing Is Real’ + Video

Following the release of her debut EP ‘Systems Fail’, which was released last year to rave reviews from fans and critics alike, 18-year old indie / bedroom pop upriser LILAC SPIRIT is back with her brand new single and first offering of 2020 titled ‘Nothing Is Real’.

Unveiled alongside a fitting music video, shot in Kyiv, Ukraine, and directed by burgeoning filmmaker, photographer and creative designer Ubik Litvin (Vogue, Marie Claire, VIVA), ‘Nothing Is Real’ will serve as the precursor for her upcoming debut album, which is scheduled for release this autumn.

Speaking about how ‘Nothing Is Real’ came about, Ukraine-born Lilac Spirit says, “The chorus came to my mind about three years ago, but with absolutely different lyrics, but when I found this song unfinished a year later, I was dealing with some inner conflicts. It didn’t take me long to think of the new lyrics, because they were just my mind’s reflections that were perfectly matching the melody. This song is a reality check for me, because neither my past nor my future is real. We are just stuck there with our present, which is, in fact, momentary. Yesterday is a memory, and tomorrow is unknown, today is fleeting. So is anything even real? Yes or no, why should it matter anyway?”

Song of the Day: Where’s The Love? – Neak

After making his entry on the blog last month with single, ‘Abstract’ featuring rapper Since9ine6ix, NEAK makes a return, claiming the Song of the Day spot with latest track, ‘Where’s The Love?’

Speaking of the track, which arguably has a tinge of Kanye West (pre-Kardashian), Neak says: “As people, we are affected by societal outcomes and the ways in which we interact with what’s presented to us (media, news, etc.). In this record, I touched on what has affected me and many others, and how it relates to the way we see life; addressing various perspectives that we inherently embrace and live under day-to-day.”

‘Where’s The Love?’ is now out on all major streaming and download sites. Have a listen below…
