Happy Monday for Hightowers
On Monday, November 4, Bavarian radio station Bayern2’s Zündfunk show put our song ‘Hightowers’ to the test in the Montagsdemo segment – and we’re pleased to say that the panel of music industry identities gave it an aggregate score of 31.5 out of 40 – cracking the reputedly hard-to-breach 30-point barrier.
‘An assured sense of style’
The name of the band ‘The Tiller & The Tide’ sets the tone for their debut album: the ocean runs like a leitmotif through ‘Nero’s Prospect’, be it in the form of poetic lyrics about sailors, in the dusky design of artwork, or the rich soundscapes that inundate listeners from the get-go and carry them off into dream-like parallel worlds for the next hour. Sometimes it seems as if the musicians surrender without resistance to the various currents of the sea before grasping the tiller to navigate the waves with an assured sense of style.
How relaxed melancholy can be
The ‘sofa concerts’ in the Ulm Kulturfahrschule have long been a cherished focal point for music fans, and the intimate setting provided the perfect backdrop for the melodic and emotionally driven soundscapes of Leipzig band The Tiller & the Tide, who put on a beautiful concert evening for music lovers and willing dreamers.
