Colson XL Weave Romantic Acapella into Dark House with ‘Nothing Real’

Electronic duo Colson XL have epitomized the sound of expression to an emotional response and unleashed a dark house tune with their latest single release, “Nothing Real.”

The track begins with feel-good vocals and slowly weaves into an echoed chord that gives off an intriguing and deep build-up. The vocal chops amongst the lyrics “something real” and “nothing real” provides the song with substance by making room for a soulful yet dancy twist.

With romantic lyrics and rolling, darker, distorted basslines, the Texas-based artists have delivered a track with just the perfect amount of contrast. Over eighteen years of close friendship, Cole and Harrison have used their chemistry and reflected it in the production of their music.

Since 2019, Colson XL has been evolving rapidly with their sound as they have released music on reputable labels such as Sable Valley, Elysian Records, Phuture Collective, and Bonsai Collective. The pair continuously strive to explore cutting-edge sounds that are driven by components of future bass, trap, indie electronica, and house.
