Cody Simpson & The Tide Release 'Wave One' EP

Cody Simpson & The Tide Release ‘Wave One’ EP

Cody Simpson & The Tide just released their new EP, Wave One! With inspiration from surf music, rock music, and a bit of psychedelia, the EP perfectly encapsulates Venice Beach and the sun-kissed streets of Southern California where it was penned.

“The majority of the music started with riffs I was writing,” says Cody. “It was different for me. ‘Waiting for The Tide’ began as a poem that I wrote about the sea level rise and humanity’s attitude towards environmental issues. “Tell Me Why” is really the most vulnerable I’ve ever been, and “Ramona” hinges on this really crazy transition. Every song speaks to a different side of who I am.”

Cody says that the reason behind the name was that he wanted this body of work to be an audio replication of what The Tide is as an element of nature. “During that one summer, I had so many revelatory experiences. I wanted to be an exemplar of The Tide’s flow. It was about taking people back to that primitive innocence and being able to appreciate that. Music is the best vehicle to do so.”

My name is Melanie Gomez and I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
