ABOUT THEM:

Formed in 2008, House of Light is an underground band formed in Berlin though none of the members come from Germany. With roots in new wave, 80s and psychedelic music, they have been comapared to groups as varied as Joy Division, Nick Cave, Radiohead, the Doors and Sonic Youth.
All songs are written by J de Vries and Valentina Veil. The music is often described as dark and melodic. The lyrics tend to have a lyrical or post-romantic bent reminiscent of the optimism and of the 80s and the laments of the 90s.
In 2010, with the addition of Valentina Veil on vox and keyboards, the sound of the band became increasingly psychedelic. A second guitarist Diego Ferri (guitarist for Chinawoman) was also joined the group and brought size to the overall sound of the House of Light or HOL as they were also known to their fans.
In the same year their first album "Come Into My Night" came out through Pale Music International and later Neon Sigh Records (USA Seattle) with some positive acclaim amongst the underground press in Europe. The album, with songs of lameted loss of soul, and urban angst mixed a dark pop sensibility with some post-rock sounds and some electronic elements.
In the wake of their USA tour they are recording their 2nd Album a more electronic album produced by Valentina Veil and are in the middle of monthly single releases.

Songs are like unborn babies waities for human light. we are grateful and open to the forces that be that wish to guide and energise the brave and creative in spite of the machinations of the Nervous System.
