Sentinel is an Indie-dream-pop three piece based in the Bay Area of California. The seeds of this sunny-seaside-dream-pop began between Tarabud (vocals/bass), Dennis Bestafka (guitars), and Bill Mowery (drums) after meeting up in the San Francisco music scene, an unstoppable Aquarian trio with like minds and a love of making music.
Sentinel's sound is strongly influenced of their mutual visions of 80's synth and 90's dream pop. Bands like Cocteau Twins, Smiths, U2, My Bloody Valentine, Cure, Flock Of Seagulls. Dead Can Dance, and Ocean Blue have provided consistent inspiration, creating a long catalog of moods & textures to draw from while developing their sound.
Over the years their catalog has been expansive with variety. The following five albums and several singles were self-released: Sentinel (self titled) - 2004; The Singles - 2005; Sequels & Hunches E.P. - 2007; Kites Without Strings - 2008; For Days Deep & single video- 2010; Jet Black Single & video - 2010; Dark End Single- 2011; Somewhere Else Single ~ video & dance remix - 2012, and new album - Points of Light - 2015.
