A Shoreline Dream – The Silent Sunrise

Shoegaze is still alive and well, thanks to bands like Denver-based A Shoreline Dream. Their fourth full-length, The Silent Sunrise, sounds like a band raised on old Lush, Ride and even a couple of Sigur Ros records. The nine-tracks here divert little from the basic formula of atmospheric guitars and Ryan Policky’s subtle vocals struggling to be heard over the deep lines of synth and guitars.

The recording of The Silent Sunrise was done inside a historic 20th Century barn formerly belonging to PT Barnum which adds a bit to the sometimes eerie vibe captured on this record.

The band is not exactly treading new ground here, but the result is satisfying nonetheless. And the genre lives on…
