Tracklist: Shy And The Fight - All That We See Or Seem

Another example of what a band did next after having a track on the STN compilation. Actually, technically it's what they did before, as Chester's positive folk collective have put out a free five track download of songs they didn't have anything else to do with. This track, which has as far as we can tell mutated into a song called Dream Within A Dream which is in their current set, comes across as a junior Leisure Society (whose new album is well worth the effort, by the way), a classic acoustic pop melody with little need of adding to lest it spoil the mood, but they do anyway and when a sunrise is evoked amid much darker intentions with the help of massed backing vocals and spare glockenspiel it seems entirely fitting the mood.
