LA’s Christine Gordon is keeping classic dance music alive and kicking with this soulful and synth-soaked new smash hit. Emerging complete with a whopping ten remixed versions to accompany the original release, the track comes with all of the essential building blocks that allow a dance-pop hit to really kick in.
Fusing the addictive benefits of a rhythmic and upbeat soundscape, one with a likable and uplifting drop – and a series of creative instrumental moments that rain down with brilliant vibrancy and colour – with a quickly engaging, emotional story-line and vocal, Tidal Wave is a simple dream of a pop track. The song utilizes poetry and metaphor to craft and build-up brilliantly towards and easily memorable hook.
While the majority of dance-pop fusion offerings over-step the mark somewhat, mistaking memorable or catchy for intrusive and impossible to forget, Tidal Wave takes a much more humble and organic approach – something that’s easy to appreciate throughout any one of these recent remixes of the track. At the same time, it’s not difficult to pick out Christine’s gentle and authentic vocal tone amidst any one of these soundscapes – a humble yet effective trait that again works in favour of the song and the artist behind it.
Summer 2019 is likely to be hearing a whole lot more of Tidal Wave as the weeks go by.
