About The Riptide Movement
It’s been an incredible 2015 so far for the Dublin four-piece who represented national broadcaster RTE at Eurosonic in January and then secured nominations at The Meteor Choice Music Prize awards in Dublin – Ireland’s answer to The Mercury Music Prize – for Song of the Year for their Top 10 Irish smash, All Works Out, (which was recently featured on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch) and Album of the Year for their No.1, Irish gold-selling album, Getting Through. Their performance on the night was one of the most-talked about highlights of the TV show that went out live across the nation.
The Lucan quartet has been busy these past few months embarking on the release of their lauded album, “Getting Through”, in the UK and Europe. An early review from The Guardian declared the record as “..impassioned and anthemic – and they deserve their big moment”.
The album topped the Irish charts and achieved Gold status for the band while the lead single “All Works Out” was a Top 10 hit. Both album and single were nominated for Choice Music Prize “Album Of The Year” & “Single Of The Year” respectively.
While they have not stopped to catch a breath yet, there’s no sight of the band slowing down any time soon and this summer they have played festivals such as Electric Picnic, Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape, Benicassim and T in the Park.
The current single “Monster” is out now.
The Riptide Movement are: Mal Tuohy (vocals and guitar), JP Dalton (guitar), Gerry McGarry (bass & harmonica) and Gar Byrne (drums & piano).
