Geman Post-Hardcore band THE TIDAL SLEEP have unveiled a new video for “Collapses”, a track from their 2017 record “Be Water”. Directed by Ryan Mackfall, a British filmmaker who has also worked with Deftones, Gojira, and Defeater, the video can be watched below.
The band recently released the “Be Kind” EP via This Charming Man Records. Find the full stream below.
It’s This Charming Man’s release No. 100! Four songs from the sessions for the 2017 album „Be Water“, put together by TCM veterans The Tidal Sleep. The name of the EP hints at the origin of the songs and the production is as awesome as with the previous release! So it’s all just compiled scraps? If you listen closely you will notice that the songs are neither redundant nor do they represent a „Be Water 2“. While the album was already diverse, especially in regards to vocals, The Tidal Sleep are in peak form when it comes to songwriting – it includes many ideas that possibly would have cluttered the album with these additional tracks. Yet as a one-sided 12“ they turn out to be an absolute joy! There are the familiar carpets of sound The Tidal Sleep are known for, plus they manage to facilitate strong and catchy vocal parts, in an even more targeted fashion than on the album. Those who enjoyed the last Touché Amoré album should definitely not miss out on this. But there are new things to explore for everyone: the song „Cures“ is so fast and dynamic that it would have Deafhaven green with envy! The next album must provide many more of such excursions! „Be Kind“ is proof that the band is able to enrich their own sound in manifold ways without distorting it. It is a record that is absolutely worthy of the release number TCM100! (The Tidal Sleep)
“Be Kind” is the most recent output by The Tidal Sleep from Germany. The four songs on this one-sided 12” were recorded during the sessions for their latest full length LP, but upon listening it becomes clear that The Tidal Sleep’s trademark post-hardcore sound has been further expanded to a level that easily gives these tracks the power to stand for their own. Filled to the brim with interesting songwriting ideas beyond the beaten paths and incorporating an array of elements that range from furious blast-beat drumming to introspective clean singing and atmospheric intricacy, “Be Kind” is a manifest of The Tidal Sleep’s status as a fan favorite that will appeal to anyone who is into emotive (Post-)Hardcore in the vein of Touché Amoré, At The Drive-In or Birds in Row. This is the 100th release on This Charming Man Records, and The Tidal Sleep have been a part of the journey almost all the way from the beginning. (This Charming Man Records)
