WATCHING TIDES - We’ve Been So Close, Yet So Alone 12" LP
This album is intense, almost too bombastic and precise to believe there are only three people on stage. To be honest, my big emo-times were the late 90s - midwest sound a la Crank or Caulfield, and since one year ago I had never heard of this Berlin three-piece. Watching Tides fits more into the later wave of emotional hardcore, with atmospheric guitar layers like early Piano Become The Teeth, with a more edgy sound. Technique-wise they are very close to Cascet Lottery, with nice rhythms and a top notch drumming. You can find a bit of a grunge vibe as well, the singing reminds a bit of Tigers Jaw or Basement, without being too sympathetic.
