Description

Here is the debut album from Tide Lines – a four-piece Scottish band whose roots in the Highlands of Scotland are omnipresent in their fresh and eclectic musical style.

The 14-track CD is based around original material as well as a traditional Gaelic song and two tracks of dynamic bagpipe tunes. The songs within, eight of which are from the pen of lead singer Robert Robertson, deal with what it is to be young, what it was to be young, and the influence of place on the grace of youth.

The album also presents a discussion of the complex and wonderful relationship between the rural and the urban, the tranquil and the bustling, or (more specifically) that historic relationship between the band’s native Highlands and Islands, and their resident city of Glasgow.

These lyrical themes are encapsulated in the album’s artwork – a specially commissioned painting by Daisy Williams (a young, award-winning artist from the island of Mull) whose piece perfectly captures the emotions of her recent life-changing move from the Hebrides to the bright lights of Glasgow.
Featuring on the album are a number of talented guest musicians – including Anthony Thistlethwaite of The Saw Doctors and The Waterboys, whose saxophone and mandolin playing beautifully augment two of the tracks.
