True Tides Announce Survive EP

3 brothers from Cork, True Tides have had a whirlwind 2019 having established themselves as a major buzz act in Ireland with their guitar driven synth pop brimming with hooks, soaring melodies and layers of intricate vocal harmonies.

With only 3 songs released to date, the brothers made their national television debut on the Late Late Show; had their first UK television synch with their track ‘The Answer’ appearing on E4’s ‘Made in Chelsea’; were playlisted on national + regional radio; hit almost half a million streams and featured on numerous Spotify playlists including New Music Friday; sold out a Cork City Hall headline show performing with a full orchestra; played their first headline tour of Ireland packing out venues across the country including Whelans, Róisín Dubh and Cyprus Avenue followed by numerous festival appearances such as Body & Soul and the main stage at Indiependence; performed on some of the biggest stages in Ireland to thousands at sold out shows while supporting acts such as Picture This at the INEC Arena, The Coronas at Independent Park Stadium, Galway Big Top and The Olympia, The Academic at Iveagh Gardens and many other venues including Ulster Hall in Belfast!

Having already made an explosive impact in 2019, True Tides look destined for a huge 2020 having released a new single ‘SURVIVE’ with Warner Music Ireland which very quickly went top 10 airplay within a few weeks of release – ‘Survive’ is another pop banger with a pumping guitar hook and a vocal melody that underscores the positive message behind the song.

Although you might get knocked down or pushed back, sometimes just trying to do your best and facing your fears head on can be enough to find your inner belief again. As the chorus states “Get up through all your fears, get up through all the nights, get up through your darkest moments, you will survive“.

Since release the track has racked up almost 100,000 streams on all DSP’s since release and the band have had over half a million views on some social media clips posted over the last few weeks – most notably an infamous ‘Sax Balcony’ video where Cian (lead singer) performed some old classics on his saxophone to fellow apartment dwellers.
