Sunscreen release video clip for ‘Tide‘, the lead track from debut EP ‘Just a Drop’

Premiering via Rolling Stone AU this Tuesday, Sydney dream-rock band Sunscreen are to unveil the captivating new music video for ‘Tide‘. The track is taken from Sunscreen’s recently released debut EP ‘Just A Drop’ – a split from Spunk Records / Dinosaur City Records.

Directed by Courtney Brooks alongside an all-women crew, the video for ‘Tide‘ explores the female experience of waking up ‘the morning after’ alone to the sobering light of day. Lead singer and guitarist Sarah Sykes says the clip “blurs the lines between what is real and surreal, addressing the feelings of confusion and disorientation we’re often left with after big nights out. These feeling that can really hit the surface the morning after, when at the end you’re left alone with only your thoughts.”

Sykes explains, “We created a series of surreal morning-after scenes, jumping between fantasy and reality, and a party and its aftermath. The clip expresses how easy it can be to feel socially isolated, even when there’s no lack of people around you.”



“Sarah’s voice draws you in, the band closes the door behind you, and then it’s just a matter of enjoying the ride. I did.” – Richard Kingsmill, triple j

“The release of Tide reinforces Sunscreen’s talent for multi-layered hooks and absorbing feels, playing out like The Pretenders with a lighter, more pensive poise.”  – Nick Rodwell, 4ZZZ

Tide follows on from April’s debut single Voices in demonstrating the group’s formidable guitar-pop chops, teaming undulating riffs with mellifluous melodies and easy-listening accessibility.” – The Music

“…the control [Sarah Sykes] has over her voice is unbelievable and sounds as good on record as it does live.” – Pat Trotter, I OH YOU

“This Sydney group are making some dreamy garage rock” – Pilerats
