Album Review: Triathalon – Lo-Tide

The newest addition to the Broken Circles Records family, Triathalon, have officially released their debut full-length Lo-Tide this week.

Boasting a sound composed of experimental surf and mo-town rock, Lo-Tide is 29 minutes of lofty tunes that flow flawlessly from one song onto the next, creating a noise of “sketchiness.” “High Tide” fades delicately into the album’s first single “Brain Dead” to form a dense swell of airy vocals delivered on a wave of soaring guitar work that is designed to be the perfect chill-out music. This is an album that could not fail in helping you keep positive and smiling.

Songs like “Get Back” and “Swells” definitely have potential in delivering an atmospheric spectacle live, which audiences are sure to soak in. Lo-Tide is thick with the cheery good-times vibes that bands like Wavves have become recognised for. At 29 minutes long, the record feels short, but it surely does leave you wanting more.

Hailing from Savannah, GA, the quartet is set to hit the USA on a full set of dates this November. Recommended for fans of artists such as Mac Demarco, Ducktails, The Zombies, Wavves, the album is certainly worth a listen.
