Dream-pop outfit Secret Shine was formed in November 1990 in Bristol, United Kingdom by vocalist Jamie Gingell and ex-Panda Pops guitarist Scott Purnell; originally dubbed Amelia's Dream, the duo recorded a three-song demo which they mailed to the influential indie label Sarah Records, who agreed to issue a single, After Years, in the autumn of 1991. Another single, Unbearable, appeared almost simultaneously on the German imprint A Turntable Friend; by this time the group had rechristened itself Secret Shine
