    ----------

    While EP-1: Echoes & Waves tackled the titanic topics of abandonment, alcoholism, the death of a parent, coping with an adoption, and examining the past, EP-2: Shadows & Sand is the second half of what was always intended to be a full length album.

    With the two most compelling tracks from EP-1 (edited as well as remastered), Shadows & Sand is about identifying grief, waking up on the proverbial shore, and trying to move to a place of survivorship, hope and faith.

about

"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."

-KT LINDEMANN, 90.3 FM- The Current

"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."
