Big Tide
Sync Or Swim

We loved that earlier Big Tide 12" which allowed me to live out all my Dumptruck/Guadalcanal Diary fantasies. It's been a long time in the waiting but here is a debut full length which will hopefully set Ben Thomas towards the big(ger) league.  Think classic sounding chiming pop rock with nods towards the Byrds and the Icicle Works. Pal of our store Jonathan Nash (Hookworms/Cowtown) pops up on drums too!

Half The Time

Leeds-based Liverpool-born Ben Thomas began his journey as Big Tide when he hooked up with Eagulls/Pulled Apart By Horses producer Matt Johnson. Taking his influences from The Byrds, Big Star and Teenage Fanclub he’s created some pretty classy sixties-tinged power-pop with his new single Half The Time. Two track 12” pressed on 140g black vinyl.
