After years of travels abroad and crafting in the studio, we are very excited to finally play in PDX again. We will be playing our entire new, unreleased record, entitled From Shores Of Sleep, from start to finish.

Captained by its sounds—frantic rhythms calling from the horizon, rich brass beds swelling with the tides, and layered vocal harmonies filling the air—From Shores Of Sleep is a through-composed, single piece of music full of surprises. The listener is taken on a voyage within a dream, through ten individual songs exploring the balance between realism and idealism, responsibility and adventure-seeking, the world we want to see and the world we actually see.

Preparations for the live performance of From Shores Of Sleep have included a tricky re-envisioning of what five musicians are capable of onstage. The result is a compelling multi-instrumental showcase accompanied by multiple visual projections that realizes as closely as possible the reverie and adventure of the album as it was conceived.
