Brian Hazard’s Color Theory dropped their Lucky Ago album on October 18th and one of the standout tracks on a strong album is the lyrical melancholy of Shatterproof.
The album revolves around various superstitions and as you may have guessed, this track revolves the beliefs and myths around breaking mirrors. With the backdrop of an arrangement that captures the spirit of being abroad at midnight; danger and excitement everywhere, Hazard recounts a tale of bad luck avoided in a literary, lyrical manner.
With the arrangement harking back to early Depeche Mode at their most sparse but melodic, and Hazard’s vocals displaying a real air of sensitivity, the song subtly but firmly stakes out its ground as a fine example of thoughtful synthpop.
Shatterproof by Color Theory is out now, and can be streamed on Spotify and Bandcamp, as well as other digital streaming services.
