Brian Hazard (aka Color Theory) is the one man wizard behind this latest romantic synth track “Glory Days”. It’s a warm and melodic synthwave track that is well written and catchy.
Nothing changes in the day by day
But then we look back
And nothing is the same
What do we cling to at the last?
Boring stories of foolish acts
Enlarged and embellished
Sealed and vacuum-packed
Best friends can’t let go of the past
A life in Technicolor
Beyond the ever after
A yellowed Polaroid
Can’t fill the aching void
Of glory days
Crushed by the absolute fact
That things can never go back
To how they used to be
The glory days
Those were the glory days
Wasn’t ready to come of age
Still waiting for my shot at center stage
Too immature to let it go
I’m inclined to take the longer view
The future me seeking out the future you
Forever hunting high and low
It isn’t all bad, getting older
Waited years to kiss you
And now I do it every day
And if you can’t recall
We’ll just redo it all
The glory days
These are the glory days.
Love the intro on here with the inclusion of another Depeche Mode track, “Shouldn’t Have Done That” before going full into Shake the Disease mode. Like the bending bass synth line as well.
Got a new remix from Memorry dropping his brand of tropical goodness on a Color Theory track. This track was originally found on Color Theory’s latest release, “Adjustments pt3”. Memorry is fresh off of his recent endeavor of writhing Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix show theme song.

About this song
80’s synthpop is in Brian Hazard’s blood, but he mostly listens to Electronic Dance Music these days. His distinctive brand of literary dance pop draws from both, fleshed out with rich piano voicings. Anyone who took music lessons as a kid calls themselves “classically trained,” but Hazard went the distance, earning a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance. Immediately after graduation, he left Beethoven and Brahms behind to pursue his first musical inspiration, Depeche Mode.
Color Theory is about to release his third Adjustments EP tomorrow, titled appropriately as “Adjustments Pt. 3”. From said EP, we have this exclusive premier of this upbeat synthpop track with polished vocals, pristine arrangements, and a time warp happening around the 3/4 mark in the track. The time warp is explained by the artist:
As a teenager, I was fascinated with astral projection, otherwise known as an “out of body experience” or OBE. I read and re-read an autobiography called “Journeys Out of the Body” by Robert Monroe, and truly believed that his adventures were real. Years later, I found out he was sniffing paint thinner at the time. Ah, heroes.

Right on the heels of the release of Adjustments Pt. 2 EP from Color Theory, which is set to be released tomorrow, we have the first single entitled, “Headphones”. Love that rubber bass that smudges and oozes and the pseudo-guitar licks.
