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.
