Umber is one man, namely Alex Steward, who manages to swell up vast soundscapes that rise and fall with the ululations of your dreams, shifting softly into the quiet depths of your mind. He produces his work, aptly, in the cosy world of his own bedroom, utilising a homely feel in composing such wonderfully subtle musical meanderings.

His self-released debut mini-album, Morning’s Pass, is currently available on Bandcamp, with a name-your-price offer. Go explore the Umber mindset, preferably with something warm to drink and somewhere snug to nestle into.

You can hear more at his bandcamp.
