Originating in Barnum, Colorado A Shoreline Dream is best described as a “progressive shoegaze” band combining lush sampled textures, organic instrumentation, and vocals layered like a synth similar in vein to bands such as Ride and Sigur Rós mixed with an early Dead Can Dance production style.
Over the past 15 years ASD has churned out numerous releases under their own label (Latenight Weeknight Records), working with legends Ulrich Schnauss and Mark Kramer. Recently they landed distribution by one of the top UK indie labels (Rocket Girl Records) for a song written while visiting Ulrich in Leytonstone, and have also remixed for progressive label gods K-Scope, for a song by Engineers. With the world in both social and political upheaval, producer and vocalist Ryan Policky gained creative strength and determination by events around him and abroad to develop something not only consistent with the times, but also the most refined and heartfelt music the band has ever produced with the 2020 LP "Melting". Original member Erik Jeffries added to the emotion with powerfully epic and post rock influenced guitar moments that stand out as some of the best work the band has released to date.
