Andy Cairns says: “There’s a Samuel Beckett influence on Tides. I used to live near the harbour in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland. I’d sometimes stay up all night to try to get inspiration for songs and often ended up going down to the pier and just look out at the waves. Later on, I found out that Beckett used to get a great deal of influence from that as well. I took that low point in my life and how I managed to dig myself out of it as an inspiration.

“The spark that lit the idea was a quote from his play Krapp’s Last Tape,” he adds. “It goes, ‘Spiritually a year of profound gloom and indulgence until that memorable night in March, at the end of the jetty, in the howling wind, never to be forgotten, when I suddenly saw the whole thing. The vision at last… the fire that set me alight.’ The idea was fortified after listening to Standing By The Sea by Hüsker Dü from their 1984 masterpiece, Zen Arcade.”
