SHORE are a 4-piece band from Swindon, creating dreamy and moving indie tunes.
Since forming in early 2017, Harry Leigh, Nick Tucker and Ben Tinson set to work on bringing a series of Harry’s bedroom recorded demos to life. Five of these songs make up ‘From the Start’, which is available on all regular streaming platforms and purchasing outlets as of 15.09.17. Including a small amount of physical copies on their http://shoreband.bigcartel.com page.
‘From The Start’ is one of the standout debut releases we’ve heard in a long time. - Even The Stars
The often dark-themed indie anthems that SHORE have created are influenced much by the life events and observations of lyricist/lead vocalist Harry Leigh, who isn’t scared to keep his words real. The EP covers a range of subjects, including relationships, mental health issues, saying goodbye to a family home, and even a near death experience.
Having only played their first show in July, with Swindon indie-favourites MISFIRES and newcomers GETRZ, SHORE have been gaining live experience with other local talent, such as The Sulks and The Harlers.
With the addition of new drummer James Gray (replacing the departing Matt Bateman), SHORE have been practicing away, and refining their sound. Determined to keep pushing on, and with a bunch of exciting new tracks written, the guys hope to escape the confines of their hometown and take their music to as many ears as possible.
SHORE consists of:
Harry Leigh - vocals & guitar
Nick Tucker - lead guitar, synth/keys & backing vocals
Ben Tinson - bass & backing vocals
James Gray - drums
The name SHORE is taken from a lyric in the Little Comets song 'Bridge Burn'. Unrelated to the subject of the song, the 'shore' is a metaphor for a comfort zone during times of anxiety and stress.
Nick and Harry caused quite a stir at 110 Above festival 2017, when they took a large inflatable rubber ring flamingo (with a SHORE sticker on it, of course) and threw it into the crowd during Eliza and the Bear's performance. The flamingo made it up on stage and was even worn for half a song by the guitarist. This was a (very small scale) publicity stunt, but that flamingo will always go down in history.
Look out for the flamingo. It's coming.
