South Coast indie-pop outfit Crystal Tides share new track ‘Monday’
‘Monday’ is the latest release from Portsmouth based 4-piece Crystal Tides, an anthemic indie-rock tune with arena-ready choruses, big-room guitar work and infectious vocal hooks. Following the success of previous single ‘Ex’, the South Coast rockers are keeping their momentum up as they smash through 2020 with another fresh, up and coming track.
A true foot tapper, ‘Monday’ showcases the group’s undeniable talent and concreted sound. Leading with powerful vocal delivery over a foundation of characteristically indie bass tones and guitar riffs, ‘Monday’ has everything that you could want from a festival-ready summer hit. Lyrically, Crystal Tides acknowledge that they are not as young as they used to be, despite wanting to hold on to the days of their youth. Ultimately, according to the band, the track is about “pushing aside the responsibilities of real life and having fun.”
Though drawing comparison with the likes of Neon Trees, Marsicans, and Sea Girls, Crystal Tides are well on their way to carving a space for their own sound. ‘Monday’ is a track which enforces a real free-spirited notion of having fun, in the metaphorical sense and also with artistic production. The single is out now on all streaming platforms.
