    ----------

    Charting the Titanic's course with lush, ambient noise from Harland and Wolff's Belfast (Ireland) shipyard to Southampton (UK), to Chelsea Piers (New York), to Nicollet Mall (Minneapolis) where surviving passenger Constance Willard walked almost daily, Shadows & Sand is a deeply personal tale of survival draped in sprawling pianos, chamber rock, shoegaze and gloom pop.

    ----------

    While Echoes & Waves tackled the titanic topics of alcoholism, neglect, adoption, and the death of a loved one, Shadows & Sand dissects the past while moving the listener to a place of reflection, hope and change.

    Set against ambient noise from Belfast (Ireland), Chelsea (New York) and Nicolett Mall (Minneapolis), it is a deeply personal tale draped in glean's signature mix of sprawling pianos, chamber rock, shoe gaze and doom pop.

about

"Calder'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, 89.3 FM- The Current

"It’s goth. It’s rock. 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."
