COLORAY / IS LOVE EVER ENOUGH

ONE GENRE I HAVE YET TO COVER IS ELECTRONIC. WELL EARLY RISERS, I GET TO CROSS IT OFF OF MY BUCKET LIST TODAY. MAKING HIS EARLY RISING DEBUT IS COLORAY. ORIGINALLY HAILING FROM THE NETHERLANDS, COLORAY HAS BEEN WORKING TIRELESSLY FROM ONE OF, IF NOT THE CULTURAL MECCA FOR ELECTRONIC MUSIC (BERLIN). MY FORTE IS TYPICALLY INDIE AND HIP-HOP.. HOWEVER WHEN A BUDDY OF MINE FROM ACROSS THE POND SENT THIS TO ME FOR CONSIDERATION, I HAD TO COVER.

THE SOUND DESIGN ON THIS IS PHENOMAL. BASS IS WARM AND FUZZY, THE VOCALS SOUND ODDLY REMINISCENT TO THE 1980’S GROUP TEARS FOR FEARS. PERHAPS IT’S THE SONICS OF THE SONG. MAYBE IT’S EVEN THE SUBTLE NUANCES THAT COME IN THE STAGES OF AT FIRST THAT SENTIMENT MADE ME FEEL A BIT FAUX PAS OR LAZY. HOWEVER, IF YOU WERE TO DO A DIG INTO COLORAY WITH A LITTLE MORE INTENT, YOU’D FINE THAT HE’S ALWAYS HELD THE CONCEPT OF SONGWRITING NEAR AND DEAR TO HIS HEART.

UNEQUIVOCALLY, THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST AVANT GARDE SONG I’VE COVERED. CONVERSELY, I’M WILLING TO HEDGE A BET THAT COLORAY IS ALSO PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED ARTISTS THAT I’VE COVERED. IN JUST THE LAST THREE YEARS, HE’S COMPILED AN IMPRESSIVE CATALOGUE AND I ASSURE YOU, IF I’M EVER IN BERLIN… I’M HITTING A COLORAY SHOW. STREAM THE SONG BELOW AND BE SURE TO CHECK OUT COLORAY ON SOCIALS @HEYCOLORAY
