Electronic musician Brian Hazard aka Color Theory has been releasing music under that name since 1993, yet still manages to create fresh and exciting sounds, such as on his new track, Backward.

Unusually for Hazard, he lets his vocals take centre role here. His unerring ear for a light melody and an instantaneous hook can sometimes obscure how good his voice actually is. He lets his vocal range and ability to wrap emotions around a word or phrase deliver the message of the lyrics as much as the low key chord changes, giving Backward a very personal and intimate tone.

Backward is out now on Spotify as well as other digital streaming services – you can also pick up exclusives and premieres via his Patreon service. He also makes regular updates on InstagramTwitter and Facebook.
