ALBUM PREMIERE: Shoreline Is - Watch It All Go

German indie rock/dream pop quartet Shoreline Is released their debut album 'Deal Kindly' in 2012. Almost two years later, they started sharing a few tracks on their soundcloud from their second full-length album, which Fp2t is honored to premiere today. Sven Riehle, Jannick Frömming, Julian Prott and Stefan Dierkes are based in Cologne and they worked hard and patiently in order to create an album that was surely worth the wait. Drenched in chiming guitars, soft synths and wonderful vocals, the ravishing melodies of the 9-track album seem to get better and better with every hearing and make for an album that is easy to repeat and hard to 'hear' it go. 
'Watch It All Go' is available digitally on the band's bandcamp and you can stream it in full below.

PREMIERE: Talking Bush - Desperate

Talking Bush, Saint Petersburg's Nikita Bushmanov's brainchild, is one of the reasons I think 2015 has been a year with a lot of new promising dream pop projects. His debut EP 'Ordinary Unusual' was released earlier this summer via Shelflife Records. Nikita has been working non-stop on the songs that will soon be part of his first full-length album 'Stories From Outer Space'. He has just unveiled the second track off the album. 'Desperate' follows the lines of his previous songs with catchy tunes, balancing between synth pop and dream pop, and Nikita's beautifully gentle vocals. 
Get the key to unlock the entry to a dreamy garden. Get 'Desperate' below.

Tiny Fireflies - Taken

Kristine Capua(Tiny Microphone) and Lisle Mitnik(Fireflies) formed Tiny Fireflies when EardrumsPop asked them to create a song together for their "Between Two Waves" compilation. The Chicago based duo have since published more songs and released their EP Change in 2011. Their last single 'Picture Perfect' having been released in 2012, Kristine and Lisle had been working on their debut full-length album. Yesterday they unveiled the first song off 'The Space Between', a nine-track album which will be released on November 11th. 'Taken' is a gorgeous synth-pop track that you will instanty take to. 
In eager anticipation of the album, make sure to listen to 'Taken' below. 

Sunflowerheads - Yarn EP

August, Emil, Oliver, Viktor and Philip are sunflowerheads, a Swedish shoegaze band, which was formed in the beginning of 2015. Late in the summer they published their first track Tired Eyes and they are about to release their debut EP Yarn. Distorted guitars and hazy vocals make up a sound that do not remind of cold southern Sweden where these guys come from. 'Yarn' is a promising debut that will have you anticipating more of their music. 
Listen to 'Yarn' below and stream/pay what you like the rest of the EP below.
