about

It's been two years since the release of the Destroy Electronica EP and, while the long-promised debut album is now finally in production, Sora Shima thought it was a fitting time to dust off some archived gems and assemble them into a (for lack of a better term) B-sides collection. Spanning 65 minutes across 16 tracks, it may aswell be considered THE debut album. There are revealing moments of foreboding ambience (Hello Big Sky), stark beauty (Michigan, Great Barrier) and even blissful electronics (Never Trust..) sitting right alongside the roar of Sora Shima's "epic sonic instrumental rock" in full-assault mode (Arizona, Duel 1971). Shoegaze influences come to the fore in the heavily effected acoustic guitars of 'Our Best Secrets...' and even the jangly up-tempo indierock of 'Kill Jodie's Cat' shows another side to the band's creativity and willingness to just explore sound and have fun.

100% of proceedes will go towards the recording, mixing and mastering of the debut album proper (working title: 'You Are Surrounded'). Your generosity is very much appreciated.

THANK YOU! - SS<3U
