Recorded live in the wilds of Donegal under the watchful eye of producer Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, Bell X1, Luke Sital-Singh), the record sees the band taking a measured and considered approach to song-writing and production. Following the success of the debut album Rhythm of Dawn in 2015 (“Rich harmonies. exceedingly likeable”- The Sunday Times ****), the brothers reflected on what they wanted to do next.

“’Tides’ is about hope and fear, joy and sorrow. The crushing pain of loss and the beauty of new beginnings. Self-doubt. Struggles with mental health. Victory. Defeat. New loves. It’s as close to the bone as we’ve gotten so far in our song-writing, and it presents a snapshot from a very specific time in both our lives,” says Jamie Martin.

Life is often chaotic. It can push and pull you in different directions and to different shores. We wanted to write an album that not only sat as one cohesive piece of work from beginning to end, but that also felt honest and reflective of that,” says Richie Martin.

The band has since played a string of sold out headline performances across Europe, as well as an Irish support tour with Mary Black, while ‘Tides’ was recently chosen as the RTÉ Album of the Week and has received critical acclaim.
