Life in a Velvet Sky (recorded 09 November 2017 — 20 February 2018)

I took my time over the course of 3 months to bring you this album of all new material. At least new to you. A few songs were demoed for XR1300, but never worked out right. But once I started stripping away the layers and beats they made really great Abandoned Shoreline songs.

Free as always. Enjoy if you can.
