Hot off the release of anthemic ballad “Safe With Me,” Leighton James and Christian Srigley of Adventure Club returns with “Color Blind” featuring Nurko. With both sides of the song’s production calling the single a “dream collaboration,” the song about attachment issues joins an impeccable roster of releases building up to the duo’s long-awaited album, although the exact release date in still being held under wraps. The they enlisted Daymaker for words, who envisioned a song about unhealthy attachment issues.
“‘Color Blind’ is about an old flame that I was once really attached to. I wrote about how you can see red flags and just completely ignore them when you’re seeing all these other things to love about a person.”
As elated soundscapes dawn with hushed claps echoing in perfect unison, Dayseeker’s Rory Rodriguez serenades with ignited passion. Paralleling the age-old tale of predestined soulmates or twin flames told in “Safe With Me,” “Color Blind” is a story of being so blinded by love to the point of not being able to acknowledge the toxic warning signs. In truth, the lyrics chronicle singer/songwriter Dayseeker’s past romantic relationship wherein he was completely blind to the red flags that were right in front of him.
While the first half of the tune is elevated with a deafening wash of tear-jerking future bass and rippling snares, Adventure Club switches up two and a half minutes in with a slowed, resounding breakdown.
“We absolutely love everything Nurko has been releasing, pushing melodic bass boundaries. Dayseeker is currently one of our favorite bands, so we’re completely honored to have Rory contribute his incredible vocals.”

Out now via Ultra Records, “Color Blind” pays homage to Adventure Club’s earlier trademark sound while continuing to build and expand upon every corner of the duo’s sonic repertoire. Seamlessly blending layers of emotive synths, driving basslines, and Rory Rodriguez’ exultant sad boy lyrical musings, “Color Blind” calls to the halcyon days of dance music while simultaneously barreling into sounds of the future.
