High Tides announce new album ‘Paradise Daze’ on Rad Cult

High Tides create gorgeous spells to burn down the nearest beach club. Chopped and screwed surf music. Psychedelic pop to drown your eardrums while a strange riptide drags you under. If Boards of Canada sipped a Sex on the Beach spiked with codeine, you might get something vaguely similar to Paradise Daze, the sophomore album from High Tides, sun-warped champions of yacht rot. The new album is out March 8th on TOBACCO’s Rad Cult label, and today the new track “Swaying Palms” is out to try to usher in an early spring. Listen on Soundcloud and Bandcamp, and see below for their upcoming spring tour dates opening for Black Moth Super Rainbow.
