"Release or be caught...if this be the right thing/Look what the tide brings in"
South should be huge...that is all. But alas, some bands are with the tides of popularity and some bands are not. South has always been somewhere in-between, but usually, just south of what is popular at the moment.
This song off of With The Tides is simply fantastic. Actually, the whole album is fantastic, but tis is one of my favorite songs EVER. The first time I heard it I actually felt guilty for liking Keane, Aqualung, and the like. I felt guilty because it doesn't seem fair to me that some bands rise to such prominence whilst others get swept out to sea.
If you see a motif forming around direction (SOUTH) and water (With the Tides) then you get the drift of my not so subtle metaphor. South is a little band with a big sound that got swept away in the tsunami of popular music.
They are an island unto themselves and if you are invited visit if you like such music. "Loosen your hold...and look what the tide brings in."
