Crystal Tides are about to unleash another indie-pop anthem off the back of their last release ‘Ex’. They’re keeping their relentless momentum up in 2020 as they flex their studio muscle once again to provide some of the freshest up and coming sounds around. ‘Monday’ is out now. You can steam it here
Since bursting onto the scene in 2018, the 4-piece have concreted their sound and are quickly becoming masters of their craft. Each release boasts infectious guitar work, arena-sized vocal hooks and some of the catchiest choruses you’ll hear in a long time. Plus, it’s all delivered with inimitable character and passion that makes the band who they are. ‘Monday’ is no exception, a real indie-disco triumph that showcases Billy Gregory’s euphoric singing work, Harry Knowles’ big-room guitar hooks and George Regan’s foundation-laying bass tones. On creating the track, they added:
“Monday’ is about the turning point in life where the band is starting to realise we are not as young as we used to be. We can’t keep going out like we used to but there’s an internal battle you have of ‘am I told old for this?’ or ‘You only live once, why not?!’. Ultimately it’s about pushing aside the responsibilities of real life and having fun.”
Based in Portsmouth, Crystal Tides are often selling out hometown shows, and they’re also building their loyal following up throughout London and other areas surrounding the capital. From headline shows, to supporting the likes of The Snuts, Larkins and even topping the bill at Victorious Festival’s Seaside Stage. As well as the live circuit, they’ve pricked up the ears and won over the hearts of some of the biggest names in the business, including making the Radio X Evening Playlist with their track ‘Deserter,’ not to mention having the same track crowned as BBC Introducing Solent’s Track of the Week.
