Progressive shoegazers A Shoreline Dream have reunited with the band’s original drummer Gabriel Ratliff to release their new ‘Waitout’ EP via Latenight Weeknight Records, which includes two brand new songs alongside new re-masters of three of their favorite tracks from the past.
While Ryan Policky (vocals, guitar, keys, bass) and Erik Jeffries (guitar) had been releasing one single at a time over the past three years (with a vinyl-only album being the end goal), the duo found themselves breaking out of this mold in early 2018 to reconnect with Gabe. Upon discovering a sonic continuation of their original vibe together in a brand new studio environment, two new tracks have erupted.
Titled ‘Waitout’ and ‘In the Ready Sound’, these songs will be available on the new digital EP, alongside re-masters of some of their most treasured tracks, including ‘New York’, ‘Barnum’ and ‘Projections’, one of the first tracks they wrote together back in 2005.
“The lead single ‘Waitout’ is a reflection of the current state of world affairs, focusing on the need to break away from the stagnation and creating change in our lives,” explains Ryan Policky. “It may be one of the biggest fears of those living in the world today but we do in fact need change, and the song is a rallying cry to remind us all to make it happen”.
With only a few more songs to go to complete their first and only vinyl release, this new EP from A Shoreline Dream not only celebrates the sound that started their “sound at the bottom of a well” music journey, but it also gives fans a taste of the newly re-formed and epic sound swirling through the cosmos.
The ‘Waitout’ EP will be available through the regular online stores and streaming platforms as of July 6, 2018. Previous A Shoreline Dream releases can be found via the band’s Bandcamp.
