If you have been keeping one eye on the Australian music scene over the past two years then there is a good chance that you have heard of Adelaide post-hardcore outfit Glass Tides. During that time the band have released two EPs that certainly caught a lot of people’s attention and have had the chance to open for bands such as Bodyjar and Spiderbait.

Now Glass Tides have released their debut feature album titled In Between and if you love albums that contain raw passion then you are simply going to adore this album. There is a unique rawness to this album, a rawness that shows a band that is willing to explore as they go on but also a band where the vocals reveal the pain of humanity with everything out in the open.

Smooth tracks like ‘Crawling’ are taken to new levels with stunning vocal work from Paul Bakker while the beautiful layers of ‘Somebody Else’ reveal a band that are much more mature than the fact that this is a debut album would allude to.

‘Waste’ is the kind of track that could see Glass Tides make it on the world stage and it is catchy as hell but still boasts are serious side that will draw on serious music fans. ‘Sympathy’ again sees the smoothness of the band return while the sound of the track itself conjures up memories of bands like Angela’s Dish and Kisschasy. Then there is the brilliant ‘Insecure’ that just continues to build in intensity while the vocals clearly portray the pain the song is written about.

Glass Tide’s aggressive side is revealed with ‘The Past is Dead’ while the beautiful ‘Mirrors’ and the haunting ‘Pointless View’ show the exact polar opposite. In Between then reaches the heights again as Bakker declares ‘take me away’ over and over on ‘Happy’ while that late 2000s vibe returns with the heartfelt title track that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on one of the soundtracks for One Tree Hill.

In Between is the kind of album that shows that Glass Tides have a big future ahead of them. This is an album from the heart that is not going to disappoint.
