The Transonics – ‘Tides’

Out today, ‘Tides’ is the new single from The Transonics, taken from their upcoming self released EP of the same name, which is due out on August 13.

Channelling a little bit of Mike Oldfield, all the surf bands you’ve ever heard of, and Stevie Nicks, ‘Tides’ is a bright piece of power-pop that will resonate in your brain for ages after it’s finished. The female-led six piece band from Columbia, South Carolina, specialise in infectious, danceable, high energy music that draws the listener in, and just refuses to let go again. There’s something to ‘Tides’ that reminds us a little bit too of The B-52s, and we really enjoy the idea of that.

‘Tides’ follows on from The Transonics’ debut album, ‘Lost In Time’, released last year. That album spent 13 weeks on the NACC charts, and if the lead single is anything to go by, then ‘Tides’ is likely to follow suit.

Listen to ‘Tides’ below. You can find out more about The Transonics and their music online on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and their official website.
