Light EP

"A five-track ode to the beauty of voice and the instruments that cradle it. Vocalist Ian Williams carries notes like a penetrating whisper, reminding me of the delivery sensitivities of Zach Condon and Markéta Irglová. Accompanied by the remarkable multi-instrumented Katie Mosehauer, these two are composing truly beautiful cinematic sounds. Breathing fragile breezes into existence."

—Global Texan Chronicles

 

"The theme of Light is uncertainty, anxiety, and the inability to truly define the concept of beauty. The duo blends the scope of rock music with lushly layered classical textures and Williams' gleaming, sensitive voice. The EP is made up of five tracks, opening with "Wildfires," a gentle, delicate tune swelling with strings exuding soft filaments of color. There's a baroque, liturgical feel to the song; almost sacred. "Darkest Day" rides tender rolling harmonics atop the tantalizing pluck of strings and elusive piano coloration. Williams' tones reflect simple sophistication and lustrous timbres. The title track features a dramatic piano and melancholic violin. As the strings elevate, surrounding Williams' voice, the tune takes on an intense suffusion of anxiety. The harmonic flow undulates with pensive tendrils of nuanced uneasiness. "Winter" integrates layers of strings softly radiant. The feel presented embraces alt-folk and classical flavors. The resulting music is smoothly beautiful. "Your Voice" recalls Joni Mitchell backed by refined strings that achieve elegant muscularity as the harmonics expand to blooming hues. The spiritual ambience of this tune imbues it with exaggerated grace."
