Tides EP - Limited Edition CD
Tides is the third single taken from Disquiet, and will be released as a limited edition CD, featuring two exclusive new B-sides - Smile or Die and Slippies, and a remix of Insecurity by industrial/electro producer Pitchphase.
On writing Tides, frontman Andy Cairns says:
“When I lived in Dun Laoghaire in Ireland I used to live near the harbour, and some nights I’d stay up all night to try to get inspiration for songs and I often ended up going down to the pier and just looking out at the waves. Later on I found out that Samuel Beckett used to get a great deal of influence from that as well… I took that low point in my life and how I managed to dig myself out of it as an inspiration.”
“Originally Tides was written kinda like Die Laughing or Nowhere off Troublegum, with a catchy Hüsker Dü-influenced chorus, but we took a bit of influence from bands like My Bloody Valentine with the brief section of warped guitar.”
