Single Review: Lowtide – ‘Alibi’

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Melbourne’s Lowtide released their brand new single ‘Alibi’ earlier this month. The track was recorded at The Aviary in Abbotsford, Melbourne. 

‘Alibi’ is dream-pop and shoegaze all wrapped up in one magical package, featuring delicate and smooth pop rhythms and intricate production. The drowned out vocals and blurry harmonies complement the mood of the track perfectly. The haziness of ‘Alibi’ is also compatible with the emotionally heavy lyrics, which tell the story of a relationship that has run its course and is almost about to burn out, even though they’re still holding. ‘Alibi’ is the type of track that makes you want to hit play and get lost in it for hours. 

You can catch Lowtide live this month for the launch of ‘Alibi’ at Northcote Social Club of August 25th.
