Melbourne’s Lowtide’s first began to crystallise into existence in 2009 and the current line-up includes guitarist Gabriel Lewis, bassist/vocalist Lucy Buckeridge, drummer Anton Jakovljevic and guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Cole. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2014, which truly defined Lowtide’s sound and was met with critical acclaim with Fairfax writing of the album, “There is a synthesis of aural texture and melodic sensibility that is so compelling it verges on hypnotic”.
In 2017, Lowtide’s self-titled debut, alongside their ‘Julia/Spring’ 7", was released internationally via London label Opposite Number, and went on to feature in Rough Trade’s ‘Best Albums of 2016’. The band has since embarked on national and European tours, been nominated for The AMP (Australian Music Prize), received international support via BBC 6 Music, KCRW & more and played multiple festivals including NZ’s Camp A Low Hum and the recent End Of The Road Festival in the UK.
This year saw the band release their much-anticipated second album, Southern Mind, via Opposite Number and Rice Is Nice and was premiered in it’s entirety by Henry Rollins on KCRW. The album was recorded at The Aviary Studios in Victoria in the winter of 2017 and is what the band describe as an organic progression from their previous releases. With fleshed out lyrical motifs and a custom 6 string bass in the mix to enrich Lowtide’s signature layers of melody, Southern Mind has seen widespread applause throughout the dream pop community and to many corners of the globe.
