Welcome to BuzzMusic Bo Baskoro. What an exciting and passionate listening experience you've provided with your latest single, "The Color Blue." What inspired this romantic and heartfelt piece?
It actually started out as a major heartbreak song but I decided that I didn’t want to give that experience any more thought or energy. I decided to rewrite it about how I wanted to feel after something that hurt so badly. I think it’s so funny going back to the old lyrics of the song because it’s just so depressing, whereas now when I listen to this song, I genuinely smile every time. How did you want to make the listener feel when experiencing your single "The Color Blue?"
The way I imagined this song was like the first time you had a big crush on someone and they were into you too. You had just gotten your license and you two are off on a drive and you’re just running around having fun together. I want the listener to feel something sort of like that, sort of like finding new love. Did you collaborate with any producers for "The Color Blue?" What vibe or feeling did you want the song's production to give off?
I worked with my buddy Justin Abel to finish production for this one. The first time we produced it, we knew we wanted a retro sound but I feel like this time around we really nailed it. Are passionate and energetic songs like "The Color Blue" a regular occurrence for you? Do you usually create such uplifting and feel-good tunes like this?
Haha, most of my songs are actually quite the opposite. This was actually the first song that made me think “I should really be more positive."
