Because I’m always receiving so many submissions for music, I’m similarly always on the lookout for unique music – something that will make me perk up and go, “Oh, that’s new.”
Whether it’s ever been done before or not is less of a concern for me than something like whether it’s done well, and “Colors Of The Sun” by LO is certainly an example of the latter. The duet between Andreyun and Louam is pretty fascinating, as they aren’t in complete harmony, but their harmonics still play off each other in a unique way. At the same time, the choice of synths on the track is notable, as it’s both energetic and very subdued at the same time.
Something like this would allow any listener to find new aspects of the track to latch onto with each repeated play, at first perhaps the vocals (Andreyun’s, Louam’s, or both) and then maybe just the muted drum pads. It’s all up to you and that’s sort of the beauty of it.
Listen to “Colors Of The Sun” below, and then listen again.
