Album Notes
"Boston has a lot of bands and artists doing a lot of wonderful things in 2019, but there seems to be a relatively odd void when it comes to straddling a sonic line between dream-pop and modern rock.

The Shallows were formed by Brad Emerson and Jason Keisch, who wanted to take Strangeways’ British indie leanings and apply it through a broader shoegaze and post-punk filter. Megan LaFoschia and Tony DelBuono soon joined the band, with This Bliss’ Jess Baggia coming on board — just weeks ago — to round out the quintet’s lush guitar-rock grandiosity. It’s slightly unsettling, but “Arsonist” sounds like the product of a band playing together for ages, a certain chemistry oozing through the speakers, striking a nice balance between the heaviness of shoegaze and a glossy spin of traditional pop. Let’s call it pop-gaze.

With The Shallows, we’re already wandering off into the deep end." -- Michale Marotta writing for Vanyaland
