The Still Tide, a Brooklyn-born creation, has found a new home in Denver for its journey through the music industry, and they are ready for anything. The indie rock quartet released this six-track album, Tinder, last summer, and has been working on new music since then.
One by one, the group has moved to Colorado, but now that most of the band is living a mile high, the group is able to do a string of concerts. Shows will likely pick up when two members can tie up things and officially make the move to Denver.
The group paid a visit to the PULP on July 19 and put on a stellar performance. Once you hear the album, you’ll think it’s good, but you’ll be completely blown away once you get to experience them live. The bold and evocative vocals of Anna Morsett make it more than worth it to attend a concert, but the band is much more than just the punk-rock-alternative looking singer who can belt some soul.
Every member applies another layer, which makes it special and that makes their music feel very full. Since the release in 2013, the band has added elements to the already well-constructed songs, and that’s a hopeful outlook for the band. Since they have already been evolving, it helps build anticipation for another release, which could be in the next year, if we’re lucky.
Once the group was able to raise money through Kickstarter, they started recording in upstate New York, then left the rest up to fate. Soon after that, they gravitated toward the West Coast and accidently ended up in Colorado.
The album they brought with them is experimental, but completely new to the scene in Colorado. It’s something worth seeking out. From start to finish, the album is dreamy and it seems the band never worries about pushing the pace. They simply jam out, while catching it all on tape in a way only an experienced and talented band could do. One listen through the album and the raw emotion will quickly catch your attention.
It’s hard to pinpoint a specific genre to tie the band to, but the broad label of indie rock foundation seems to suit it well. The Still Tide has managed to make bar music for space cowboys, if that makes sense, which it totally does for Morsett. If you aren’t an indie rock fan, it’s okay, because you’ll probably still like what you’re hearing.
