Courts of Colfax is the new musical brainchild of American recording and songwriting duo Hugh Freeman and Quinton Bolduc. The eclectic pair of multi-instrumentalists create original, experimental genre-fluid music that defies classification. Making their debut on SoundCloud earlier this year with a self-titled two-track EP, the group introduced a sound that pulls inspiration from a broad spectrum of musical influences from Rock to Big Band.
“Blessed Elon” is the first track from the Court of Colfax EP. The track is a near-future, dystopian dark fantasy that blends classic Funk, Rock and modern Electronic music into a wildly creative new sound. In a story that harkens back to Science Fiction classics like ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,’ ‘Terminator’ and ‘Frankenstein,’ the song tells the story of an insane Artificial Intelligence that fools and foils the plans of its famous billionaire builder.
Blessed Elon is a song about a rogue AI that tricks Elon Musk into building it a body so that it may save his terminally ill girlfriend, at which point it rebuilds her into a nightmare Frankenstein of flesh and machine.Courts of Colfax
Musically the track rides on a downtempo groove that incorporates elements of Funk, Alt-Pop and Industrial. Syncopated hi-hats meet ambient synths and the low funky rumble of an analog bass guitar. Meanwhile, the über-processed robotic voice of the AI carries on a one-sided conversation with Mr. Musk. It is a wild sound. If George Clinton (P-Funk), Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo) and Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) were to collaborate on a song, I might sound something like “Blessed Elon.”
