Fusing together his love of electronic R&B and Indie Rock – Auckland based rising star Josef Scott serves up smoky grit and groove on his latest offering ‘The Tide’. The new single toes the line of seduction and swagger; opening with a strutting bass riff that gives the track a brooding haze before it rips into its dirty, guitar driven chorus hook.
Fans of albums like the Artic Monkey‘s now iconic “AM” will find a lot to love on this New Zealander’s take on groove-inducing Indie Rock. Opening up on the inspiration behind creating the track he shares:
“In 2022, during a phase of intense writing, “The Tide” emerged as a true diamond in the rough. The lyrics were inspired on one morning walk to the harbour with my girlfriend back in Auckland, New Zealand. The movement of the oceans felt like the perfect canvas to capture the ebb and flow of ones relationship with love, and the complex journey it can take you on.” – Josef Scott
