Lowtide - Lowtide
Melbourne quartet Lowtide release their self-titled debut on new London label Opposite Number. The Australian shoegaze outfit look to breach their shores with one of the most majestic Australian albums in recent years. Superficially, it would seem relatively easy to define Lowtide's music. Their reverb drenched, richly layered and heavily textured sound inhabits that celestial world where the sonics of Spacemen 3, Sparklehorse and Slowdive swoop and soar. And yet, crucially Lowtide pave a prodigal path of their own.
