True Tides are Cian, Conor and Eoghan MacSweeny. The 3 brothers have been playing music together their whole lives, developing an energetic sound with a sharp-edged pop dynamic driven by guitars and electronics with layered vocal harmonies at its core. They played their first show in January 2018 and signed with Faction Records.
True Tides have been receiving rave reviews for their high energy live performances and song-writing brimming with catchy melodies and irresistible hooks. Their last single ‘Automatic’, co-produced with Chris Bubenzer of Diffusion Lab, achieved widespread national and local air play from its release in August and continues to receive regular rotation on national radio.
They sold out their first headline show in the Soundhouse, Dublin and went on to support All Tvvins at Cork Opera House, Delorentos on their Irish tour and the Coronas for their sold out shows at the Olympia and Ulster Hall, Belfast. They also played main stage at Castlepalooza and Indiependence Music Festivals and the 2FM Rising stage at Other Voices, Dingle.
Their debut single ‘Higher’ was released April 2018. Produced by Phil Magee (Kodaline, The Script) and mixed by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, BellX1, Talos) the track was made Eoghan McDermott’s song of the week. They also released ‘Higher – Solo’, a stripped back version of the single, in December which was playlisted by Spotify UK, New Music Friday.
After an explosive first year, True Tides have been included on the 2FM Rising list for 2019 and their new single ‘The Answer’, co-produced with Cormac Butler (Kodaline, AllTvvins), is released on the 11th January.
