No Tide – Meridian

Album cover

With their latest effort, Meridian, No Tide once again show that they have the potential to take their act well beyond the borders of The Good Life. The first track of the quick 5 song EP, Forward Eyes , starts with an excellent drum solo that leads right into some excellent pop-punk cues. Next in line is Dragger , a song that digs a little deeper into No Tide s punk roots. Don t be embarrassed if you are caught bobbing your head to this one. The third song into the EP, Wasting Space , keeps pace with the song before in showcasing their punk elements. It s a solid number that does it s job of keeping up the pace of the album while adding a little variety. Arguably the best song on the EP is Crook , starting off with their boldest line, a declaration of no bullsh*t: I m a f*cking crook, I stole from you. Those things I took you can t undo. You won t get back. Rounding out the EP is Sink to the Bottom , a little ballad to moving on from a relationship. Maybe a sign that No Tide is growing to big for the confines of Lincoln?
