"Slow/ Fast" is the new single from Wellington six-piece band Tidal Rave, continuing a New Zealand (and Australasian) tradition of dark, compelling guitar and keyboard lead garage rock.
There’s something slightly claustrophobic and unsettling about the churning dense weave of the three guitars and bass backed by ghostly organ and insistent drum pulse.
Add the character provided by the interchange between three songwriter-guitarist-vocalists, one with distinctive vibrato reminiscent of The Terminals’ ominous baritone proclamations, and it’s possible to imagine "Slow/ Fast" and the album it comes from as the product of another era.
"Slow/ Fast" is from "Heart Screams" the first album from Tidal Rave, scheduled for release on Fishrider Records on 28 February 2020.

This EP from Fazerdaze (Amelia Murray) is unfussy DIY indie-pop perfection. Part pure melodic pop, part beautiful weary existential sigh with a hint of early Jesus & Mary Chain, fuzz & reverb tamed. Fishrider Records
A glorious album of dark alternative country-folk. Fairlight’s ageless voice simultaneously beautiful and terrifying, possessed of a resonant vibrato and smooth and tough as weathered teak. Fishrider Records
