Debut album by ex-Xmas Lights members Umair and Simon. This release sees crushing doom come head to head with shoegaze and post-rock. As hypnotizing as it is heavy, experimental and dissonant as it is harmonius.
"Hold You Up To The Light" is Umair's debut solo release featuring 11 acoustically based songs. For the most part the only instruments are acoustic guitar and voice, with the occasional backing instrument such as piano and electric guitar. The songs are deliberately sparse and minimalist, drawing on Umair's primal instincts of tonality and melody.
