"Lions - Single Review"

Lions is a stomper of a track and the perfect antidote to the onset of winter. There are many phases to Lions, with a barrage of change ups, and it is an extremely well grafted piece of alt-rock and an excellent debut. - Favourite Son Music Blog

"Bittersweet - Demo EP Review"

The title track [Bittersweet] is a prime example of emotive Scottish indie songwriting that twists and turns its way through worlds of yearning, angst and delicacy with barely a pause for breath. It's like a rollercoaster in that it climbs to the heights then drops back only to climb even higher...the whole thing then takes off like a rocket and the band just lift off to almost breathless degree as the salvo of guitars, rhythms, crashing drums and achingly emotive, powerful vocals, all carry you inexorably along with them and – it's gone – an absolute gem of a track [Colours]. - Andy Garibaldi - Dead Ernerst

"Live review - October 2010"

I had forgotten how utterly infectious they are. Not the kind of pop infectiousness of, say, Weezer or B*witched, but the gut wrenching familliarality of love gone wrong...The accomplishment of the four way harmonies and vocal line is a meritable achievement. - Charis Wells - Founder of Stormy Teacup Promotions.

"From The Strong Came Forth - Single Review"

Got quite a lot of time for Aspen Tide, even though they make music that I usual feel is aimed at people a good ten years or so younger than me. Happy to report that their new single is a good one then. 'From The Strong Came Forth' mixes things up a bit, changing direction a few times as it goes, inspiring bouncing around one second, then slipping into something more gentle and restrained the next, with a good old bit of screaming to round things off... - Jim Connick - Aye Tunes

'Aspen Tide' began playing in 2009. The boys met whilst studying music at university and quickly developed a sound which they felt had to be heard!

Since they have played all over Scotland, showcasing their ability to impress crowds with not only their energetic full band gigs but also their stripped back acoustic shows!

The band released their debut offering of single 'Lions' accompanied by B-side 'Breathing Underwater' on 1st December and entered 2011 with big plans of touring and further releases. Aspen Tide held true to this promise, with their follow up single 'From The Strong Came Forth' released digitally in May via iTunes and embarking on their first Scottish tour the following month.

Over the summer the band intend to begin writing their debut EP after developing a sound likened to many different artists such as Biffy Clyro, Fall Out Boy, Fightstar, Brand New, The Xcerts and many more. The future is bright for Aspen Tide...
