I never need all too much convincing to evade modernity and drift back into the relative comfort of the 90s; Timothy and the Apocalypse’s 90s rave-inspired release, Strange Tide, made taking an aural trip back across the decades all too irresistible.
Beyond the swelling progressions, crafted for filling floors and drinking in metropolitan landscapes in the twilight, there is a subtle reminder that you can only swim against the tides of narcissism for so long before you get pulled under by the self-serving currents.
With his fourth full-length album, All Busted Up, in the pipeline, there has never been a better time to indulge in Timothy and the Apocalypse’s electronica escapism.
Strange Tide is now available to stream on Spotify.
