Named one of URB Magazine’s NEXT 100 for 2008, A Shoreline Dream has been best descibed as a “melodipsych / post rock” band combining lush sampled textures, organic instrumentation, and vocals layered like a synth similar in vein to bands such as Ride, Slowdive and Sigur Rós. Originating in Barnum, Colorado they are steadily reaching out to an international fan base, which includes producers Ulrich Schnauss and Kramer (Ween / Butthole Surfers) currently working with them on upcoming material. When they formed in 2005 they all decided to take a stand against the restrictions of a normal label and formed their own (latenight weeknight records).
In the Fall of 2006, a shoreline dream released their debut album “avoiding the consequences” with a full scale attack using Ryan’s house as collateral, garnering the band attention on several samplers for Landmark Theatres, Urban Outfitters, The Sundance Film Festival, Paste Magazine among others. Critics from Filter Magazine, Paste Magazine, XLR8R, Skyscraper, and Westword gave the band very high marks.
The band released the EP “Coastal” in July of 2007, which has landed them spots on samplers for Vice Magazine, Paste Magazine, XLR8R, Landmark Theatres and Urban Outfitters. In September of 2007 the band toured with INNAWAY, and they are currently co-producing a track with Ulrich Schnauss and setting up a short tour with him, Soundpool and Experimental Aircraft for July of 2008.
