Swedish up and coming pop artist BoBo has dropped his brand new song new song 'Colour TV', the first taste of his EP due for release in September.
A hyper modern splash of neon colors, that mixes hooks with a classic 80’s tinged pop hit, 'Color TV' is reminiscent of Major Lazer's 'Lean On' mixed with a nostalgic pop style not miles away from the mighty Prince. He displays a new playful side as a new chapter in his career, targeting a global market by switching from Swedish to English and embracing new feelings within his writing.
"The whole idea of the song came up when I was playing around with a few samples. I had this line in my head ”it’s like I never seen color TV. And then when I got into the process of working on the song I googled when the first color TV was released, which was 1953. I thought that the rhyme of TV and fifty-three sounded cool and so I made up the story: I’m stuck in a 1953 ”colorless and gray” mindset, a time that I don’t belong to, until this one person comes into your life, drags you out of it and sets a big color palette on your life.”
