Tides – “Nothing Ever Changes”


The captivating debut single from Tides, “Nothing Ever Changes” presents a lushly memorable introspection; its production melds steady acoustics, spacey synth components, and driving vocal momentum — lyrically capturing the power of love and companionship. Specifically, in a world filled with mundanity and repetition, “Nothing Ever Changes” revels in the life-changing power of “the company of a loved one,” and the fulfillment found from such “in an otherwise seemingly mundane existence.” Twangy guitar ardency approaches the three-minute mark for an especially compelling sequence, culminating in a blissfully melodic vocal send-off to this standout introduction from Tides.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
