Interview: High Tyde
Share This Article:
Young, free and reckless, that’s what all of the Tumblr posts say. Your youthful years are supposed to be a frenzy of intoxicated decisions. You’re supposed to feel invincible and like a fuckabout simultaneously. Flirty eyes can lead to dirty lies, and regrets are often met by a fit of giggles. Emotional whiplash and hangovers, they’re the norm. Brighton’s High Tyde are roaring their way onto every playlist, and every dancefloor. We spoke to vocalist, Cody Thomas-Matthews, following the release of latest EP ‘Safe’, and amidst their biggest tour to date. Chatting about recent single ‘Dark Love’ Cody exclaims “Incredible! It has been received so, so well. There’s been crazy crowds to it every night.” The Annie Mac championed track catapults into chaos with ferocious drums and raucous riffs. Silky undertones of sultry bass, add a grub-glam finish to the late night texting confessions. The rollicking track rallied the troops that march to the live shows, with every intention to sweat glitter off from the eyes in heady mosh. Gushing over the eclectic atmosphere, the front-man exclaims “Maybe it’s the high energy… People love to go fucking mental at shows and people kick off to this track live. Love it!” ‘I never want to come down from this high’ rich vocals flow easily, on EP sidekick ‘These Nights’. With undeniable swagger, a hip hop beat kicks with wavering bass and a slick electro lining. “It's about a holiday we took to Amsterdam last year...” Cody starts, “Things got a bit out of hand, and it quickly became one of our favourite cities on the map. “It would have been a crime if we didn't write about it.”
