Summer is coming in fast and energy is rising, and maybe you’re looking for a new jam to compliment your mood. Avantist are here with “Tidalwave”, a song that fosters ideas of breaking away from monotony and living loudly.
The clip features many shout-outs to the surf music and vibes of the past — the riptide of the guitar lines, the oceanic title, and the final images of the main character surfing through the streets of Chicago in a pickup truck. But the Jack White-esque vocal playfulness and punk-like intensity give Avantist a contemporary shine that pulls you to your feet and compels you to move. It’s easy to relate to the man in the video as he screams his way triumphantly down the street, leaves work early, and hang around with the band late into the night.
If you’re feeling the summertime pull to let go a little, this is the track to fuel you.
