“You Used To Be A Safe Place”
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 Münster 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)
