“I’ve been working on this album for years. It has been with me through so much in my life, the highs and the lows, and it means more to me than I can put into words.

SHORE Releases New Song “Come Over”
“Uncertainty coursed through my veins as I sat in front of my phone wondering what to say. I didn’t knowhow to feel about her, so how on earth was I supposed to know what to say? I am a chronic over thinker. I give way too much credit to the “what-ifs” of life. As I was sitting on my phone that day I decided to fightback. “Why don’t you come over?” I texted. This was my revolt to overthinking. It’s hard to understand a relationship when you’re currently on the sidelines of it, and sometimes, the only way to figure it out is by sending a scary text. We broke up a week later” – SHORE

The album is the work of 3 individual singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, who share an organic connection in the craft — sensibilities that yield music that’s harmonic, haunting and also ambitious and surprising. “This album feels different than anything we’ve done in the past. We’re very simple people, all three of us. I think the album reflects that, and I hope it captures something you probably can’t describe yourself, but that speaks to you,” the band shares. “And as far as the message, it’s just shared experiences.”
“The ‘You’ in You & I represents more than just the man I love,” Rita says. “It’s my mum, my friends, my fans, and in some ways, it represents the relationship I have with myself. This album has been like my diary for the past two years, and I’m so thrilled you finally get to hear it.”
It’s The End Of The World But It’s A Beautiful Day stakes out new sonic territory for the band, with tightly arranged, concise songs that focus on emotive, straight-from-the-heart vocals and intentional instrumentation and production. The album’s 11 songs explore new feelings and colors while taking solace in the elemental: love, seizing the moment, heartbreak, and ultimately, transcendence.
