SHORELINE present in 13:19 minutes quite a lot. The quartet forces you to pay questionable compliments, all of which have to be interpreted positively: Not bad at all for a German band and well watched out for their role models. SHORELINE are extremely agile and always keep their well-balanced change between trot and gallop under control. The guys from M├╝nster pour out the four compositions with warm guitars, and as if that weren’t enough, Hansol, Julius and Tobi join forces to form an all-encompassing vocal trio.

“Recovery (feat. Tobias Pelz)” hoops forward and stands out with its polyrhythmic stops. Basically it’s very remarkable how much SHORELINE could accommodate on “You Used To Be A Safe Place”. Really exciting, which could only happen on album length. SHORELINE sound club-suitable and immediately arouse the idea that there could be much more in it.

This EP doesn’t fit a note anymore, but it doesn’t contain a note and no change too much. The earthy and dense sound completes the good impression. “You will get sick of me, I know that’s for sure. You will get sick of me, it’s just a matter of time” sing SHORELINES in the final song “Silent Friend”. Hm, I’m not so sure. (burnyourears.de)
