Biography

A Shoreline Dream has been best described as creating “melodipsych night music” by combining lush sampled textures, wall of sound dynamics, and vocals layered like a synth, similar in vein to bands such as Cocteau Twins, Porcupine Tree and Sigur Rós. Originating & recording in Denver, Colorado they have joined forces with German Mastermind Ulrich Schnauss and Mark Kramer (Low / Joy Zipper / Galaxie 500) on numerous releases, including their sophomore LP “Recollections of Memory” , the “neverChanger” EP, and most recently a single titled “London”, which was written while singer Ryan Policky was on a visit to Ulrich’s studio in the summer of 2010.

The band began in Fall of 2006, when 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 applauded the effort.

The band released the EP “Coastal” in July of 2007, which landed them spots on samplers for Vice Magazine, Paste Magazine, XLR8R, Landmark Theatres and others…

In the fall of 2007, after a West Coast tour with Innaway and an appearance at The Roxy for Filter’s “Revenge of the Sunset Strip”, A Shoreline Dream learned that Ulrich was listening to their album and loving it.
