Color of Light is the experimental, dream-pop project of producer and multi-instrumentalist Sean Neuse, formerly of Coma Cinema. He’s currently chilling in a sweet little town called Spartanburg located in South Carolina, about a day’s drive away from Asheville, dropping cool jams, of which New Noise was lucky enough to catch one.

On this sleepy, fall day, New Noise are premiering a new video from Color of Light for the song “Ocean of Dead Feelings,” which will appear on the album Daydream Garden, out November 13 on Imera Records.

You can check out this little shoegaze ditty below:

Sean draws influence from various inspiring acts signed over the years to 4AD and Kranky, as well as stuff your Dad still listens to, like Pink Floyd. So, consider DMing your pops a link to this article and see if he likes it. Maybe then, you’ll have something to listen to together when you drop in for Thanksgiving this year. ‘Tis the season for familial bonding, after all.

Sean’s previous album, Memory, served as an emotional reckoning in the face of loss, but his forthcoming album Daydream Garden comes from a place of acceptance.

As Sean explains about his new track:

“‘Ocean of Dead Feelings’ was inspired after coming home from a trip to the outer edge of North Carolina. The boundless oceans triggered all of these dark emotions, even thoughts of suicide I’ve kept locked away inside myself for a long time. The ocean being the mirror of life, inspired the song coming together for the album.”
