Sage G.C. The best thing about A Shoreline Dream is that I am just as likely to blast their music as I am to fall asleep to it. You want this album for your next long drive, or your next Sunday nap. Favorite track: the heart never recovered.

The Silent Sunrise” is the fourth full-length album from US based progressive shoegazers A Shoreline Dream and their first release in three years. The recording process was set in an early 20th century barn located in the historic Barnum neighborhood – namesake of circus pioneer P.T. Barnum. This strange collection of buildings and houses provided a unique backdrop to a deep and powerful look into the cosmos of star swept swirling guitars, groove oriented bass lines and emanating vocals.

The listener is invited to immerse themselves into the sonic nuances captured in the studio’s recording rooms including castle inspired plaster walls, visions of eye floaters in layered paints and staircases of searing flames. The entire space is littered with restored pinball machines, haunted house effects and carny style oddities. Listen closely and you can hear the character of the space, ambient noises from the studio’s specters and a visit from an often-irate neighbor.

The Silent Sunrise” is a brand new step in the world of Shoegaze, and an important release from a band many have loved since their collaborations with Ulrich Schnauss.


"This is a wild and beautiful thing, turn it up!" - The Big Takeover

"Fans of dream pop can do no wrong in looking for this album and investigating all of its delicate curves and beauty. Hardly silent, The Silent Sunrise is a glorious dawn." - PopMatters

"The tracks heavily reverbed guitar arpeggios and wall-of-sound production give “The Heart Never Recovered” a classic shoegaze sound somewhere between Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine. It’s begging for you to play it loud, please oblige." - Surviving The Golden Age
