High Tyde At The Joiners
Indie band High Tyde visited Southampton last night on the second date of their tour.
They played the famous Joiners venue in Southampton which has seen the likes of Oasis, Kasabian and Coldplay play there on their rises to fame. The venue was almost at capacity and the crowd were much more lively than expected, even during the support bands, Howland and Dive In.
High Tyde played their biggest song to date, ‘Do What You Want To’, early on in the set and it went down a treat with the crowd. With over 500,000 plays on Spotify you could tell it’s the bands biggest song so far with almost every member of the crowd belting out the lyrics.
On the same day that the band had their new EP 'Safe' premiered on Clash ahead of its release on Friday, the band played a few tunes from it and sounded like it could be even better than their debut EP ‘Fuzz’.
The band have been compared to Two Door Cinema Club and Bastille and you can definitely see why with upbeat tunes and catchy lyrics. Despite being young, the band have a professional and confident stage presence lead by their front man Cody.
The band finished with their leading track from their new EP called 'Dark Love', which was my personal favourite of the set. After seeing them live you can really see why they’re being tipped to be one of the bands to watch this year, as said by BBC Introducing.
The band still have 14 dates of their 16 date tour to go including venues such as London Dingwalls and Glasgow’s King Tuts and I definitely recommend you try and catch them.
