When a significant other walks out of your life, it often feels like the world has been drained of its former vibrancy, rendering it dreary and gray. Sure enough, Jason Caesar is suffering from an acute case of Colorblindness following his split with the woman he loves. On the second single from alt-R&B trio Göld Spex (following the reader-approved Lost in the Sound), crew members Austin Leeds and ATM cook up a subdued, yet driving synth beat to back the singer as he soulfully grapples with the breakup. Appropriately given the record’s theme, he peppers his verses with plenty of chromatic imagery: “I lost you in my purple haze / You left with him instead of me, I turned a special shade of green.” For this moody jam and much more, check out the Spex’s Refraction EP next Tuesday, when it hits The DJBooth for free streaming and download.
