Description

Sync or Swim on CD

Founded by Liverpool native Ben Thomas in 2017, Big Tide was born out of Thomas's disillusionment with the electronic music scene. His previous output as French house producer L'Etranger spanned for six years gaining attention from the likes of Clash Magazine, Earmilk, and Amazing Radio, amongst others. The impetus to form this new project came in 2013 while touring with Spectrals as lead guitarist. A stay in Paris was the final catalyst for a change in musical direction when Ben picked up his 12-string and the chiming sound of Big Tide was born. The second single "Hide Me In Your Spaceship" features drums by Jonathan Nash, former drummer for Hookworms and guitarist for Cowtown. Thomas sings in his signature northern vocal style whilst shimmering 12-string guitars form the cornerstone of the Big Tide sound. Taking cues from bands like Big Star and Teenage Fanclub, Big Tide's music blends elements from '60s power pop, like The Byrds, and the '70s folk rock of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
