Half-Light is his debut solo album, filled with cinematic electronic pop that pulls from the reflective, from neon synthetic charm to choral rises and timpani led percussion.

Rostam creates a sonic landscape unique to him with the help of a plethora of instrumentation from glam-rock guitars, fuzzy synths, string arrangements, and an instrument rarely heard from him, his voice. For his solo debut Rostam creates a colorful expression of his own progression over the years to where he is now both lyrically and sonically. He isn't one to shy away from the unexpected, and embraces his own diverse identity. If you are a fan of his work with Vampire Weekend or are familiar with his previous work you won't be disappointed in this album.
