Last week, we took a look at singer/songwriter Kelsey Wild’s highly-anticipated debut at SXSW, the famous Austin-based festival where artists from around the globe converge for a “Texas-sized” week of music and media. Since 1987, a lot of deserving, indie acts such as Wild have been given the chance to show industry players what they’ve got as well as build their fanbase. Another deserving group making the trek this year is Denver’s A Shoreline Dream.
A Shoreline Dream has been making their own success for years now. Formed in 2005, the group created their own label and released albums on their own dime. This melodipsych/post rock band is now set to take SXSW by storm, combining thick textures with synths and dreamlike dynamics. With a new bassist, a killer producer and more steam than ever, A Shoreline Dream is ready to rock it.
OurStage caught up with guitarist Ryan Policky to talk about the festival, his previous performances there and the band’s plans to get loud.
