Review: Brighton based band Shoreline is the brainchild of guitarist Tom Cowan and Italian-born vocalist Beatrice Sanjust, and incorporates the deft musicianship of a whole host of their talented associates. This 10" is their debut release and collects five beautiful tracks of whimsical folk, akin to that of contemporaries Joanna Newsom, Vashti Bunyan or Iron & Wine. They blend gorgeous sparse instrumentation; harps, bouzouki and of course acoustic guitar with Beatrice Sanjust's smooth and sensual vocals and playful lyrical content - the result is more than explosive. Opening track 'Lightning' sets the scene perfectly with two minutes of simple but drastically effective guitar, xylophone and that evocative voice. By the time you reach the ep's highlight 'Kings' you're already won over, the unforgettable harmonies bring to mind the finest moments of British folk music. Shoreline inject enough of their own personality and originality to make this a stunning experience. The band are even at this early stage garnering heaps of praise for their live shows in and around Brighton and Italy, and the word is only just starting to get out. With a spot already booked for this year's influential Green Man festival - 'From Eden, Home & In Between' is only the beginning for Shoreline, great things are destined to come!
