More About

San Francisco's Tidelands is a pop-rock combo whose music could easily fit in a shuffle of David Bowie, Wilco, and R.E.M. The duo blends twinkling guitars, ornamental synths, and strings — with a booming flugelhorn — into a melange it calls "orchestral indie." Gabriel Montana Leis' vocal delivery recalls Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, with unique phrasing that transitions from tongue-twisting quips to sustained legatos. When Tidelands plays Amnesia this week, expect Leis and Mie Araki to reproduce the same grandiose orchestration heard on standout songs like "The New Black" and "Holy Grail" with live loops and samples.
