True Tides shine with melodic indie pop single ‘Higher’ on Faction Records

True Tides are a new act formed last year by Cork brothers Cian, Conor and Eoghan McSweeney who are now based in Dublin. They were formerly called MKAI.

‘Higher’ is the brothers’ debut single released via Faction Records.

The track is a melodic pop track with radio-friendly multi-toned vocal deliveries.

It’s been added to Nialler9’s new Irish Music playlist.

Formed in 2017, True Tides is the intrepid pop project of Cian, Conor and Eoghan McSweeney, three brothers from Cork, now living in Dublin. Through a reasonably simple set-up of drums, guitar, bass, electronics and vocals, they create bold and expressive guitar music thatโ€™s at once shamelessly catchy and sneakily complex. Although the brothers have technically been making music together their whole lives , they played their first gig as True Tides in January 2018 at arts and mental health festival First Fortnight, on a bill curated by ALL TVVINS. They are currently writing their debut album.
