“Objects Are Colorless” By Zakoor
Austin-based indie rock duo Zakoor, recently released “Objects are Colorless,” their third single off their album, Life Cycle, due out May 6th. Objects Are Colorless” continues the themes of love in a life that can seem lonely and nihilistic at times. The explosive drums and swirling guitar riffs create an expansive and lush sound, which counter singer-songwriter John Zakoor’s Elliott Smith-like vocals and existential lyrics. Life Cycle was mixed and produced by Paul Kolderie (Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr.) and mastered by Pete Weiss.
Zakoor released two back-to-back EPs in 2020 (One, Take Off Your Jacket), the music becoming a little less depressing and a little more mature over time. The new full-length album, Life Cycle, is the culmination of the sounds and feelings that swept over its writers over the last two years of pandemic isolation. The lyrics draw on themes of love and death and accepting nature’s indifference towards our finding happiness (case in point: pandemics). Each track attempts to probe a little deeper into the meaning of Big Things like: living, trusting, loving, watching Netflix, scrolling Instagram, joy, despair, dignity, and meaning itself for those endeavoring to be–and feel–alive at this moment in timespace. Zakoor has been fortunate enough to work with Paul Kolderie as producer and mixing engineer on all three releases. Paul activated each track with energy and expertise and afforded Zakoor’s listeners with the kind of ear candy one can get lost in.
