    "It’s goth. It’s rock. It’s pop. It’s, weirdly, a little bit soul music. It’s prog, ferchrissake. It’s future. It’s ambient. It takes a bunch of dark, eerie, interesting genres and stirs them together in a pot with loud, intricate guitars (courtesy The Afghan Whigs’ Rick McCollum) at the fore."

    "Aldridge-Astor’s emotive alto croons, whispers, and wails as liquid strings and effects paint a dark underwater landscape. An impressive debut effort, executed to chilling effect."

    ----------

    EP-1: Echoes & Waves touched on the topics of abandonment, alcoholism, the death of a parent, coping with an adoption, coming to terms with failed relationships and trying to face one's self. Emotionally, this was a titanic undertaking, so it was given an RMS Titanic theme.

    EP-2: Shadows & Sand is the second half of what was always intended to be a full length, combined with the two most requested tracks from EP-1- re-mixed + remastered- for a more complete listening experience. It is about waking up on the proverbial shore, and trying to move to a place of peace and hope.

about

glean Minneapolis, Minnesota
