Track of the Week: GEISTE - ‘Tide’

January 11, 2021

French Avant-Pop priestess GEISTE returns with the official video to her new single ‘Tide’ released last month, following her debut Utopia EP with Liverpool based indie label Snide Records. The track’s visual pairing brings the curtain down on a fantastic year of personal triumph for the songwriter.

Born in the south of France, GEISTE grew up writing stories and composing music from a young age. No ordinary producer and songwriter, she considers herself an incredibly visual artist; her music not being whole without some sort of visual artistic accompaniment. Starting out as an acoustic artist, her sound and her live shows evolved as she began to incorporate electronic elements, attracting interest across the London music scene (where she currently resides). These electronic projects, paired with powerful lyrics and a heavy dose of influence from the likes of Grimes, MØ and Lorde, landed GEISTE a welcome spot in the world of dark pop as she was selected for the coveted 2021 INES Showcase Festival Network and earned a spot on VEVO’s Emerging Artists playlist with her previous single ALIBI.

Setting out to explore different aspects of the human experience on each EP, GEISTE seeks to connect with her audience through her cinematic soundscapes and poetic lyrics. The emotive songstress’ second chapter, Retrogrades, is set for release in April 2021, aiming to pick up where Utopia left off on the quest to uncover her true self.

Self-directed by GEISTE and friends in her native country during the summer of 2020, the stirring video for ‘Tide’ features haunting, underwater noir imagery as the artist tangles with her lovers and demons in moonlit waters. Bathed in fragility, her ethereal vocal rises and falls over the track in a way that stimulates every sense. Witnessing GEISTE’s evocative, otherworldly visions coming to life adds another dimension entirely to the track, exposing the soul-searching, longing emotions behind it all.

With its all consuming soundscapes that linger long after silence settles, ‘Tide’ is a track which leaves you with shivers, an audio visual treat delivering a bewitching balance of beauty and darkness.
