Color of Light is the experimental dream pop project of producer and multi-instrumentalist Sean Neuse, formerly of Coma Cinema. Based in the small city of Spartanburg, South Carolina sixty miles outside the mountains of Asheville, Neuse began the project in 2014, releasing his debut album Memory the following year to praise from Noisey.

“Taking influence from early 4AD and Kranky artists while finding name inspiration from the iconic prismatic cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of The Moon, Color of Light’s sound fittingly lands in the shades between dream pop, shoegaze, psychedelia, noise pop, and ambient experimentalism. Where Memory served as an emotional reckoning as several loved ones faced the ends of their lives, his new album Daydream Garden comes from a place of acceptance.”
The result is a sound that’s both indebted to and measured alongside genre-pushing classics like Slowdive’s Pygmalion and Loveliescrushing’s blowneyelashwish while also serving as a serene, accepting memorial to lost loved ones.
Color of Light‘s “Caregiver : Dream Doubt : No 6” is the first release for the artist on Somewherecold Records. Get your copy of the single with the exclusive b-side.
