"Endless Wave" with it's dreamer than dreamy melodies is from Tidal Life's album "Do Answers Come In Dreams"

Endless Wave by Tidal Life appropriately moves along on pearly guitar notes that float in the air while others push them along like currents. Maybe it is just because surfing was such a huge part of my past life that the verse progression has me imagining long lines on 6 foot long walls at Trestles but this is not a surfing song. In fact, what feels like the bridge (but instead is a linear shift, the song becoming something else) with it's dreamier than dreamy melodies, big wall of synths and talk of starlight and aliens feels spacey and psychedelic. I love, love the melodies here and the big sound and those drums, those drum rolls make me smile.

Endless Wave is the fourth track on Tidal Life's first full length album "Do Answers Come in Dreams that just came out in May (2019).
