Southern Shores is the Toronto-based project comprised of Jamie Townsend and Ben Dalton. According to the press release, they developed a signature style of deeply layered electronic music evoking faraway locales. A collage of samples and found sound, their songs cohere around soulful melodies delivered with a soft gaze and a playful heart.

Siena (Part 1) is a new EP which is out now via Cascine. It is the first of a two-part series, and captures the feeling of an ocean breeze gently whipping a coastal town. “The mood of the record is more of a sunset, rather than midday bliss,” says Jamie. “It’s that subtle melancholy that lies beneath the bright textural exterior.”
