State your history.

We came together at university and began writing songs during breaks between lectures. The more we wrote the more they enjoyed it and wanted to take it further.

 

We finally decided to record one of our songs and show it to some people and test it on them to see how it would do. People really responded well so we knew we had to take it up a level.

 

We began writing more and recording more songs and finally launched as Crystal Tides mid-2018.

.

.

.

Describe yourself as an artist.

We go back to the classic indie we grew up on in school – Always trying to capture that feel-good element. Combining catchy pop melodies with indie guitar licks to create our sound.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the genre of your music.

Indie – Rock.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the story behind your song.

‘Thunder’ was written about all the people who are telling other people’s stories as if they were their own. It’s usually to impress other people; they steal your thunder and take credit for something that hasn’t even happened to them!

 

Subliminally, the song focuses on people who are trying to live in someone else’s shoes, pretending to be someone they aren’t in order to stand out or fit in.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the problems you are facing as a musician.

Trying to work out how to get our music in front of people and grow our fan base organically.

.

.

.

List the names of blogs, radio or television stations that have supported you so far.

We have had support from BBC Introducing, Indie Life Online, It’s All Indie, Gigslutz, Express FM, Buzz Radio to name a few…there is more but we’d be typing forever!

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your music career, experience, and future goals.

We all have grown up playing in various bands and working on various projects. Our future goals are to get some more major radio coverage, take over some big UK festivals and head out on some tours.

.

.

.

 

Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

Something that’s going on in one of our lives or maybe if something is annoying one of us perhaps the way certain people can be. It really is whatever happens to us that causes a trigger in emotion.

.

.

.

 

Brief us the top-secret behind making a hit song.

It is top secret; we aren’t actually allowed to say.

.

.

.

 

Tell the piece of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Don’t quit at the first hurdle, more times than not trying to get a career in music is a lot of failures! It is all about learning from those failures and turning them into successes.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

We would take a lot of time off our jobs to write/record new music, but mainly money going into promotion.

.

.

.

Discuss music promotion and how you are boosting your fan base.

We try to get featured on blogs, radio stations, and Spotify playlists. Good fan engagement is key. Trying to work out what it is our fans want and making sure we give it to them!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career.

We all work jobs outside of music. It is hard, almost like working two jobs but it is worth it and one-day music will be our only job!

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Crystal Tides – The only real name we could agree on when we were deciding!

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

Thunder – When people steal your thunder!

Crystal Tides, the south coast’s new favourite indie/pop band, draw on classic noughties guitar riffs and modern feel-good pop to create an irresistible fusion that captures the very essence of adolescence and never-ending summer.

 

Harry Knowles, lead guitar, Sam Pennington, drums, Billy Gregory, vocals, and George Regan, bass, came together in a small flat in Brighton where Billy and Harry wrote songs on their breaks from lectures at university.

 

When lifelong friends Sam and George joined in it felt like they’d all been playing together for years already.

 

A manic DIY debut tour took them around the UK in a swirling mess of glitter, late nights and exuberance.

 

They recorded a demo that connected with their fledgling young fan base.

 

Sellout shows in Portsmouth, London and Hertfordshire followed.

 

The band was invited to perform at Etihad Stadium for the Champions League semifinal.

 

Crystal Tides, the band making waves, promise big things for 2019.

 

Their new single ‘Little Lies’ was released on April 5th, 2019.

 

Crystal Tides on ‘Little Lies’

‘Little Lies’ tells the story of all the mornings we have woken up not knowing where we are, how we got there and the big one of ‘What the hell happened last night?’

 

We’ve all been there!

 

And even though the hangover is killing you, it comes to the next evening and all you want to do is go out and do it all again.

 

We chose the title ‘Little Lies’ because of two things really…

 

Firstly, all those little lies you tell yourself when you are hung-over, just to try and make yourself feel better!

 

You know like ‘I didn’t even drink that much’ or ‘I’m never drinking again!’

 

And secondly, all the little lies that spread around about what happened on your drunken night out… those things that everybody talks about but nobody truly knows what happened.

 

Have a listen to our new single! We guarantee you’ll love it!

.

.

.

 

Tell us your most memorable live performance.

We were lucky enough to play at the Etihad Stadium ahead of the Champions League semifinals in 2018. Doesn’t get much better than that!

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you build your song.

One of us usually comes up with an idea and brings it to the band – We then sit down and mix all of our own little ideas into it and go from there.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you impress your fans with your music.

We try and make it catchy and instantly memorable. We want people to hear our music and have it resonate with them!

.

.

.

Tell us what you will do apart from music.

Hopefully nothing! Music is the end goal and we don’t want to settle for anything less!

.

.

.

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist on entering the music chart.

Don’t give up. If you enjoy playing music and releasing it and it makes you happy but it doesn’t go the way you want it too, stick with it.

.

.

.

State your future goals.

Aiming for major radio coverage and perhaps a tour around the UK! Watch this space.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the most difficult part of the recording.

Deciding if what you have already is good enough and having the open mind to change it.

.

.

.

Discuss the greatest mistake you have ever made in your music career.

Too many to mention, but mistakes only make us better.
