Colorado post-rock shoegazers A Shoreline Dream have unveiled their video for “Seek to Hide”, a song featured on their long-awaited Melting’LP set for release later this summer via Latenight Weeknight Records.
A Shoreline Dream is Ryan Policky (vocals, guitar, keys, bass, production) and Erik Jeffries (guitar, backing vocals) with the inclusion of keyboardist Chase Dobson rounding out the sound on Melting, whose first single is lush swirling, euphoric, and easy to drift away upon a hazy fugue floating within an ocean of sound.
“This song ‘Seek to Hide’ is a true diving into the fact that we are a society so caught up in a digital world that when something real actually happens we have no idea where to turn”, says Ryan Policky.
“Who is real? What is fake? Who am I? Am I famous? Am I a nobody? Is this place around me VR?
All questions of how messed up our society has become. It’s confusing and bizarre watching the world around us become more digital than ever before.”
Watch the below the video for “Seek to Hide”, with footage by Kennon Fliesher, Ryan Policky and Erik Jeffries, and Editing/VFX by Latenight Weeknight:
Following a series of singles, Melting is A Shoreline Dream’s first full-length album since 2014’s The Silent Sunrise.
The album is the response to the world’s current social and political upheaval in, where singer/songwriter Ryan Policky channeled his creativity and determination, along with Erik Jeffries’ powerful guitar work, to light a candle in the darkness, conjuring hope through shimmering melodies.
“Our vibe tends to move darker, but lately and surprisingly it has been uptempo, yet still dark. I have always loved that. A sound that is super energetic but downright dreary. I think that is where we are. We’re pumped to get depressed, but also in ideas that were nearly all conceived on their first play-throughs. Emotion translated into tempos. Take the primal element of rhythm and build layers on top of it. Ours just happened to turn out the way they are here, and we were super excited how it came to be. Probably one of my favorite releases we’ve put out there,” says Ryan Policky.
“Working on “melting” and collaborating during writing and composing process was extremely rewarding. So when we started to put ideas together it seemed like new ideas were jumping out at me. And working with Ryan was fantastic. There was an openness to explore and no ideas or conversations were off limits. It really helped push me to be thoughtful (and critical) about what I was contributing and kept me very committed throughout the entire process,” adds Erik Jeffries.
On July 24, “Seek To Hide” will be available digitally through popular streaming sites such as Spotify, meanwhile The rest of the Melting LP will be released on August 21 and can already be pre-ordered via Bandcamp.
