We here at Rice Is Nice are proud to announce that Lowtide are joining the fold!
In celebration of this union, we can now share the brand new single 'Alibi', set for release this Friday, August 4.
The single premiered via Line Of Best Fit where the website described the track as - "an effortlessly dreamy affair full of moments that hoist you into a realm of comfort and peace - a realm that jars against the song's lyrical ideas."
Recorded at The Aviary Studios in Abbotsford, Victoria by Matthew Hosking, 'Alibi' is about a relationship burning out, when the mundane has well and truly overshadowed the magical, but you're still stuck in it.
To celebrate the signing and new single, Lowtide will be playing a single launch August 25 at The Northcote Social Club with special guests No Sister and Great Outdoors!
The band are also heading out on a European tour this August playing a plethora of amazing shows including End Of The Road Festival, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever supports and their own headlines, as well as an in-store performance at Rough Trade East. The band are now also working with UK label Opposite Number who will be flying the Lowtide flag EU side.
Lowtide’s self-titled debut album was released via Lost & Lonesome in July 2014 which truly defined Lowtide’s sound and was met with critical acclaim. The band has since embarked on national tours, been nominated for The Amp (Australian Music Prize), received international support via BBC 6 Music, KCRW and Opposite Number and played multiple festivals.
We are excited to deliver more melodic atmospheric beauty from Lowtide and ask you to stay tuned for more touring dates and news soon...
Play it tall and loud people.
