Color Theory (USA) - Behind the Rhine (Intuition's Alternative Radio Edit)

Color Theory is the musical alter ego of Huntington Beach singer-keyboardist-songwriter Brian Hazard. Hazard creates piano-driven electronic pop with a romantic soul, combining the emotional intensity of Tori Amos with a spacious backdrop of luscious synths and dance floor beats to create a distinctly modern brand of pop sophistication. The new sixth CD, Color Theory presents Depeche Mode, is a one-man tribute to Depeche Mode. The album reinvents eleven of their most underappreciated songs, and also includes the track "Ponytail Girl", the Color Theory original that was mistakenly thought as a Depeche Mode track.
deZeption (Denmark) - Teach Me

In May 2003 the danish futurepop act deZeption saw the first light of day. The intention was to create a positive and inspiring sound with deep, meaningful and often very ambiguous lyrics. So is deZeption what it appears to be? Or is there something more to it? Is deZeption deception? Or can more be heard between the lines? Obviously this is up to the listener to decide, but it certainly is the band’s clear intention to move the audience. The lyrics and the energy put into the music and the sound can be very deceptive. With lyrics based on a dualistic and melancholic view of life one might wonder: Maybe there is something more to it? Maybe you can change something with positive vibes? Or maybe it’s all one great deZeption…
Eight to Infinity (United Kindom) - Say You'll Come
