Central Jersey based indie trio, Silent Tides, is made up of Liam Hughes, Gus Mirabella, and Jesse Silva. Liam sings lead and plays lead guitar on his songs and Gus sings lead and plays lead guitar on his, while they play bass and sing backup on the other's song, with Jesse on drums and backup vocals.
The members all attended a catholic high school together. They found refuge from the all-male chaos and religiosity in music, that being a source of inspiration for their songwriting.
While they all went to school together, the Tides didn't form until college in 2015 when Liam realized Gus didn't just play drums. Once everybody was back from school in 2017 they started performing across NJ and NYC and have been active ever since.
Influenced by the likes of The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala, Radiohead, Talking Heads, Beatles, and CAN, their music has one foot in the past and the other in the future.
It can best be described as somewhere between garage, psych, and indie rock.
