High Tyde – Live @ The Haunt, Brighton

@ The Haunt, Brighton 29/04/2016

High Tyde a charismatic quartet, who originally come from Brighton, played to a crowd who filled and swamped the small music venue they were supported by Dive In and Clay, bands of similar ilk, who were also well received.

Their sound is one that seems to have broken the mould of what has been described as being dominated, by Aaron Powell of TMRW Magazine, as: “A flood of skinny jeaned, jangly guitar, indie pop upstarts dying to become the latest floppy haired rock gods.”

All of the tracks are filled with thought provoking yet catchy lyrics and danceable beats which convey well both live and on record.

Playing songs mainly from their new EP Safe which was released April 8, of this year and with their track Dark Love having recently been added to Topshop/Topman’s in-store playlist the band has an ever-growing following.

Cody Thomas-Matthews, the lead singer, was engaging and energetic if not a little arrogant but everything a great frontman should be (and usually is).

He interacted enthusiastically with Spencer Tobias-Williams, lead guitarist, who together with the rest of the band created a great energy for the crowd to feed off of.

The crowds support was clear, as they danced and sang along to every number with great enthusiasm, especially when encouraged to Mosh by Cody.

High Tyde put on an explosive, accomplished, clean-cut performance. These boys are destined for greatness and with recognition and plays across national radio stations, their big break is imminent and well worth watching.

High Tyde played @The Haunt, Poole Valley, Brighton on 29/04/2016; supported by Dive In and Clay.
