If you’re anything like me, you probably have no idea what the word “cerulean” means. But in this day and age, it doesn’t take much to find out. A quick Google search reveals that cerulean is in fact “a colour term that may be applied to certain colours with the hue ranging roughly between blue and cyan, overlapping with both,” according to Wikipedia. So, this begs the question, why did Maths Time Joy name his latest single after an obscure colour that, more or less, resembles the blue meth found in Breaking Bad? One listen to his new single and it all becomes clear.
Although known for his hip-hop and trap-leaning productions, MTS has gone full R&B with “Cerulean,” his latest and most fully-realized offering to date. For the London-based producer, this isn’t the first time he’s explored the world of R&B, but it does signal a shift in his sound. Everything from the wonky bassline to the over-embellished vocals give this song an unmistakeable blue hue. I guess you could say, it’s more than a colour, it’s a feeling.
