Triptides drop 7 inches of sunshine indie pop from California via unctuous-sounding French label Croque Macadam. They very-much continue their run of superior 60s inflected chime-and-jangle pop here. Clementine comes on like an early Cleaners From Venus number polished up a little. Holding On flirts with some Byrds-ian lead guitar and has charming C86 vocals. Horribly limited to 250 copies.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 19 November 2014
Oh this is lovely! The wonderful jangle pop band Triptides have made two superb albums so far and according to a snippet of information that I’ve just read, there is a third on its way. This is fabulous sparkling indie pop music that sits somewhere right in the sweet spot between The Byrds and Sarah records. ‘Clementine’ is a giddy rush of intertwining guitars, lively drumming and innocent indie-kid vocals. Good stuff. Overleaf ‘Holding On’ begins with some stinging Roger McGuinn 12 strings bursting into a summer-fresh blast of 60’s pop. Brilliant stuff which will appeal to fans of the recent granny- glassed likes of Temples, The Young Sinclairs and Violet Woods. Super limited. Be very fast.
