KOLAJ and Eric Nam have released their watery new song "Into You" just in time for summer. KOLAJ is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Teesa Houston and producer-composer Mighty Mike McGarity, known for blending together different elements to create a flawless mix of dance-pop with a touch of tropical. They may have even invented a new genre on this one, affectionately called "K-Trop" by Houston in a nod to Nam's Korean-American roots.
An aspect that sets KOLAJ apart from others in dance-pop is their penchant for live instrumentation, "Into You" mimics the feeling of being into someone. Houston and Nam's vocals blend together seamlessly on the track, evoking the feeling of one person speaking to another, expressing feelings. Add in saxophone solos, guitar plucks and conga drums with electronic production and we have a song of the summer, or maybe a summer crush.
