Boasting a line-up which includes members of Moses, Solo Ono, Sweaty Betty, Kittentank and Echo Beach, Wellington’s Tidal Rave draw influence from a variety of styles of garage rock, including a healthy dose of the surf rock alluded to in the group’s name. Their debut EP was recorded (2017) in the long-serving live-venue-turned-recording-studio Chicks Hotel in Dunedin by in-house engineer Tom Bell.Since the beginning of 2018, they have added a Synth Player – bringing them up to a six-piece. They are currently working on their debut album and released a single in September called Fomo. In November they played their first clutch of shows outside of NZ in Melbourne and had a blast. In March 2019 they will be releasing the second single, ‘Dark Wizard,’ from their debut album.  They have supported and played alongside the likes of Swim Team, Bench Press, Hex, The Echo Ohs, All Seeing Hand, Teeth, Tigers of the Sea, and Dad Jokes. They have also played; The Newtown Festival, Now and A Gathering in the Forrest.
