As with Weather Diaries, Tomorrow’s Shore was made alongside producers Erol Alkan and Alan Moulder. The British shoegazers’ recently revealed “Pulsar” appears on the EP, as does the newly shared single “Catch You Dreaming.”
A leftover from the Weather Diaries writing and recording sessions, “Catch You Dreaming” is a pulsing, echoing romance from the end of the universe. In fact, the band’s Andy Bell says that’s exactly the perspective from which the song was written, with two lovers watching over the end of everything. “The protagonist looks back over the time when humanity existed, realising that we as humans brought about our own inevitable demise,” Bell explains. “Then the couple look back over their own lives of shared memories and as they are sharing this moment, everything vaporises. It’s a love song about fate, nostalgia, and having no regrets.”
