Moon Tides plays January 7 at the hi-dive
While the term "surf rock" could be applied to the music of Moon Tides (due at the hi-dive this Saturday, January 7), "dream pop" would probably come closer to describing the sound of this Fort Collins-based band: hazy, breathy vocals underneath delicate, shimmery guitar melodies. And although Moon Tides is likely to be compared to Candy Claws or Animal Collective, the band's music is very much its own, as evidenced by its undersung debut album, As Loud as the Sun. Sofia Coppola would love this. So would Gregg Araki — and, actually, anyone with an appreciation for subtle yet vivid emotional coloring in music.
