"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.
