Formed in 2017, True Tides is the intrepid pop project of Cian, Conor and Eoghan MacSweeny, three brothers from Cork, now living in Dublin. Through a reasonably simple set-up of drums, guitar, bass, electronics and vocals, they create bold and expressive guitar music that’s at once shamelessly catchy and sneakily complex. Although the brothers have technically been making music together their whole lives, they played their first gig as True Tides in January 2018 at arts and mental health festival First Fortnight, on a bill curated by ALL TVVINS.
Their debut single 'Higher' is out now on Faction Records. The track was produced by Phil Magee (Kodaline, The Script, Miles Kane) and mixed by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Bellx1, Talos).
Fresh off their release, they recently supported Ham Sandwich at the Olympia and Fenne Lilly at the Sound House, Dublin. They also played the Ruby Sessions on 12th June. They recorded a studio 8 session for the Eoghan McDermott show 2FM and their single was also recently made Eoghan McDermott's song of the week.
True Tides will be playing the main stage at Castlepalooza and Indiependence Music Festival this August and have just announced their first headline show at the Sound House, Dublin on Saturday 15th September. They are currently writing their debut album and their second single will be out this summer.
