Futureheaven – “tides”


Sydney-based band Futureheaven debut in impressive form with the track “tides,” showing the act’s enveloping shoegaze sound. A heady wall of guitars is complemented by layers of dazed vocals, emitting an ethereal charm with MBV nostalgia. Further guitar shimmering adorns the escalated vocal presence during the “high tides,” sequence, punctuated by a soaring, textured guitar punch. “Not sure if I want to, not sure if I should,” the vocals let out, gearing into another gauzy, atmospheric shoegaze romp. “tides” is a standout debut from this rising act.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Shoegaze.
