Melbourne shoegaze giants Lowtide will make the across-the-world journey this summer to play to some of their most avid fans for the very first time. Following on from the release of their new single ‘Alibi’, along with their eponymous debut album of last year and the hit “Julia/Spring” 7”, the band make the only move left to make with further dates to be announced.
End Of The Road having been long admirers of the band have booked them for their jam-packed Dorset-based festivities alongside Slowdive and Jesus & Mary Chain; two of Lowtide’s heaviest influences.
Further dates include a London show with Upset The Rhythym, a Sheffield show with Sam & Sofia and a Brighton show at The Hope and Ruin.
The band’s recent 45 with Opposite Number was the band’s second release on the label and along with the tour announcement it signifies the start of an exciting year for Lowtide who have recently been awarded a prestigious arts grant for being one of Melbourne’s finest exports.
2016 was a breakthrough year for the dream pop/indie pop/shoegaze specialists who received critical acclaim for their inaugurative long-player including #36 on Rough Trade’s renowned Albums Of The Year list whilst also having amassed 4 and 4-and-a-half-star reviews in many of their homeland’s rags, and a string of sold out shows (not to mention an AMP nomination). Steve Lamacq also became an affirmed admirer of Lowtide’s rich songs and knack for writing a hit whilst calling their music ‘effortlessly good’.
Lauren Laverne – “A quite beautiful cover of French band Asylum Party’s Julia.”
