Color Theory is an electronic indie piano pop band comprised of one member: Brian Hazard, from Huntington Beach, California. The Sound is his eighth album, which came out in August 2010. Color Theory’s sound has been likened to The Postal Service, Owl City, and Depeche Mode. In all reality, it sounds like a grown up version of Owl City, and, at times, reminiscent of Mae. I think what I like most about Color Theory is the melody and the layers of electronic harmony built on top of each other. Also, a lot of times electronic bands usually stick to the keyboard instead of the piano, but Hazard incorporates both and it’s a wonderfully pleasant mix.
