True Tides have been busy. After dominating the Irish airwaves for the last number of years, an RTÉ Choice Music Prize nomination for Song of the Year, Top 10 Radio Airplay & national playlisting across all major & regional stations, lead vocalist Cian recently joined forces with Kodaline’s Steve Garrigan to write songs for global pop giants Westlife’s new album, alongside man of the moment Ed Sheeran. Other recent accolades include co-writing the new single for multi-million streaming Norwegian DJ ‘Matoma’ & a nod from Elton John for writing and production duties with Irish heroes The Coronas. The three brothers were invited to sing alongside Sinéad O Connor on The Cranberries covers album “Salvation” and to top it off, a personal invite to the JJ Abrams hosted Oscar Wilde party in LA as part of this year’s Oscars week.
During this whirlwind few months at the helm of the Irish music industry, the band have also been working hard on new material. The first of which is their new single ‘Beating Heart’, which will be released on Friday May 27th. An upbeat 80s infused pop smash with an infectious chorus bursting with gospel style backing vocals & punctuated with Quincy Jones-style brass motifs, ‘Beating Heart’ celebrates true friends, the people on your side who aren’t afraid to tell you how it is & pull you back when you begin to lose your way.
Singer Cian says; “I often struggle with my OCD and can get lost in my obsessions, be that music making or my own thoughts which can be very isolating. For me this song is an ode to those people that remind me of what really matters; human connection”. As the chorus echoes “Don’t stop what you’re doing, keep tearing me apart, cos I need it, your reason, it’s the beating of a real life heart”, this celebration of friendship is reflected in the unapologetically joyful melody that invites you to dance with abandon in an outpouring of colorful sounds and joyous brass refrains.
