Rebel Noise: REVIEW

Tide Bends, a band born from the serendipitous meeting of Dan Nolan and Dave Hough in 2015, have been carving out their niche in the indie music scene with a sound that blends Brit rock, alternative, and shoegaze influences. Joined by Rudy Meier (Bristler, Yawn Mower) in 2022 and MJ Hancock in the following year, the band’s lineup solidified, paving the way for their musical evolution.

Since their inception, Tide Bends have been steadily building momentum with releases like their EP Greened in 2016 and singles such as “Keeper” (2019) and “Medicine Man” (2022). With each release, their fanbase has grown, propelling them into the spotlight of the Asbury Park, NJ music scene.

In a recent talk we had with lead singer Dave Hough, the band shared insights into their songwriting process and the inspiration behind their music. Drawing from a diverse range of influences, including Noel Gallagher, Elliott Smith, and Father John Misty, they explore themes of personal introspection and social dynamics in their lyrics.
