Originating in Barnum, Colorado, A Shoreline Dream is Ryan Policky (vocalist/guitarist/producer) and Erik Jeffries (guitar). They have been creating music for the last decade. Whirlwind was conceived after recent death of singer Ryan Policky’s father, and a murder occurring right next door to where A Shoreline Dream writes, practices and records.
The dark inspiration is captured perfectly by the layers of filthy guitars and insistent drums. What drew me to this duo was the comparisons to Bauhaus. Despite the many layers within the song it has an unmistakable bleak 80s gothic style.
