They uniquely weave a variety of sounds and influences to make one that is like no other. The group stands out from the crowd in a new, exciting way and will surely have fans adding this track to their rock and roll playlists.

From the jump “Changing Tides” has a fun and memorable guitar lick that continues through the verses. The visual lyrics in the song are strong like, “I will cut you out from under my skin / as the ocean’s changing tides.” The Venus Figurines lean into the ocean beach sound while still tying in a heavy rock influence.

What starts as a very relaxed song builds intensity with heavy electric guitars and screamo like vocals. It is unexpected but adds an element of surprise and pay off for such a large build. The originality of their sound is obvious and exciting.
