Romain Frequency: Research on a Nameless Colour

Did you ever have one of those dreams?  One of those where everything is blurry Technicolor, larger than life, and it all seems to melt together behind your eyes like fresh watercolor on a canvas.

Research on a Nameless Colour, the new solo album from Romain Frequency feels like such a dream.  The album is a collection of 7 instrumental pieces devoted to the emotion of non-existent (as yet) color.  Inspired by the reading of Derek Jarman’s “Chroma”, Romain Frequency has created a stunning and contemplative meditation on light, color, and space, within the songs this album contains.

With songs like “Perfect Blue”, “Infra Mauve”, or “Lucid Green” it is not hard to put in your earbuds, close your eyes, and become the colour each song represents.  The ambient textures and sounds take you there beautifully.  One finds themselves drifting from “Vivid Crystal” to “Transient Red” as easily as our bodies drift through the air that surrounds us.

The first single, “Light Black”, is presented as a more ominous and melancholic piece. This is the cosmos itself, vast and dark and ever-expanding along with the spirit of the listener.

“Light Black” has its release today with the rest of the album to follow on February 28th.  Close your eyes, put your feet up, relax, and become one with the nameless colours of Romain Frequency.  Get “Light Black” here.
