 – The Music

“Southern Mind is a Masterclass in immersion, alternately drowning and soaring” 
 – 4 STARS, The Big Issue

Following the release of their critically acclaimed album Southern Mind in February this year, Melbourne’s Lowtide return with Southern Mind Remixed.
They are thrilled to share the second track to be lifted from the forthcoming EP, Black Cab‘s remix of title track “Southern Mind”, you can listen to the original verison along with a stunning visualiser here.

Black Cab (Andrew CoatesJames Lee & Wes Holland) have five albums to their name and (fun fact) Lowtide singer/bassist Lucy Buckeridge actually played bass in the band for a year.
This 2nd single features Black Cab putting their kraut-rock meets driving Electronica touch on the EPs title track transforming it into a 6-minute jam. Black Cab is one of Lowtide’s all-time favourite local bands and this remix delivers on all levels.Southern Mind Remixed (out worldwide 9 November on an extremely limited hot pink 12″)  is a project born out of boundless knowledge and joint love for the unique and experimental, this is yet another progression for Lowtide. With Ulrich SchnaussVive La Void (Sanae Yamada/Moon Duo), Josefin Ohrn and The LiberationLost Horizons (Simon Raymonde of Cocteau Twins + Richie Thomas formerly of Jesus and Mary Chain) and Black Cab taking the controls on a largely guitar-based album the output is inevitably extraordinary.

The first track released from the EP was from Ulrich Schnauss; a pioneer of the genre and self-proclaimed admirer of the band, whose vast and synthesised expanse of the title track epitomises the project as a whole. Check out the Ulrich Schnauss remix of “Southern Mind” here.Melbourne’s Lowtide’s first began to crystallise into existence in 2009 and the current line-up includes guitarist Gabriel Lewis, bassist/vocalist Lucy Buckeridge, drummer Anton Jakovljevic and guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Cole.

Lowtide’s self-titled debut album was released in 2014, which truly defined their sound and was met with critical acclaim with Fairfax writing of the album, “There is a synthesis of aural texture and melodic sensibility that is so compelling it verges on hypnotic”.

In 2017, Lowtide’s self-titled debut, alongside their ‘Julia/Spring’ 7″, was released internationally via London label Opposite Number, and went on to feature in Rough Trade’s ‘Best Albums of 2016’.

The band has since embarked on national and European tours, been nominated for The AMP (Australian Music Prize), received international support via BBC 6 Music, KCRW & more and played multiple festivals including NZ’s Camp A Low Hum and the recent End Of The Road Festival in the UK.

This year saw the band release their much-anticipated second album, Southern Mind, via Opposite Number and Rice Is Nice and was premiered in its entirety by Henry Rollins on KCRW. The album was recorded at The Aviary Studios in Victoria in the winter of 2017 and is what the band describe as an organic progression from their previous releases.

With fleshed out lyrical motifs and a custom 6 string bass in the mix to enrich Lowtide’s signature layers of melody, Southern Mind has seen widespread applause throughout the dream pop community and to many corners of the globe.
