Slow Salvation is the dream pop project composed of Travis Trevisan and Christina Hernandez. In late 2022, Trevisan had been making instrumental dream pop songs when he stumbled upon Hernandez via her project Orion Lake. After hearing her ethereal voice and effortless command of melody, Trevisan knew Hernandez was the missing piece. He sent her an email pitching the collaboration, with a demo of the title track “Here We Lie.” Hernandez, already a fan of Trevisan’s long running shoegaze band Tape Deck Mountain, obliged, and the duo went to work on what would become Slow Salvation’s debut full length. The crosscountry collaboration developed alongside the drumming and percussion of former TDM collaborator Dylan Mandel and was mastered by Simon Scott of Slowdive.
