Sentinel is an Indie-Dream-Pop three piece, based in Northern California. The seeds of this sunny-seaside-dream-pop began with a chance encounter between Tarabud (vocals/bass), Dennis Bestafka (guitars), and Billy Mowery (drums) in San Francisco. Strongly influenced by their mutual visions of 80's synth pop and 90's dream pop, the likes of Cocteau Twins/Smiths/U2/My Bloody Valentine/ Cure/ Flock Of Seagulls/Ocean Blue, they easily shared in the creative process together. Over the years their catalog has been expansive with variety, delving into moods and textures to mold their sound. The following five albums were self released: Sentinel (self titled) - 2004; The Singles - 2005; Sequels & Hunches E.P. - 2007, Kites Without Strings - 2008, For Days Deep & video - 2009, Jet Black Single & video - 2010, Dark End single- 2011, Somewhere Else Single & video - 2012.

New album, Points of Light to be available for pre-order 5/12/2015. Official release of Points of Light, 6/2/2015 !
