Lowtide’s self titled debut album was a delicious combination of reverb-heavy dream pop and infectious melodies. The Melbourne-based band have a secret weapon in the shimmering exchanges between Lucy Buckeridge and Giles Simon – their dual bass lines and intertwining vocals are pivotal to their unique sound.
These hazy vocals and swirling guitar effects are given room to breathe as the band masterfully exploit rhythm and space. Australian fans have been enjoying all of this since 2014 – as well as a cover of Asylum Party’s “Julia” in 2015. Here in the U.K. we got the record last August – and it hasn’t been off our stereo since.
