THE RIPTIDE MOVEMENT
The Riptide Movement return to Kavanaghs Courtyard venue as part of their Irish Winter Tour!
The Riptide Movement have just released 'Plastic Oceans' and following their summer tour they're back with a bang with some new songs and all the classics! We can't wait! Irish rock band The Riptide Movement come through with the new hard-hitting video for their environmentally focused Plastic Oceans.Recorded in London with producer Chris Coady (FutureIslands, Slowdive) there's a firm backbone of the kind of slow-burning, melodic indie rock that has seen the act build a substantial following in their native Ireland.This summer sees the band continue with a heavy touring schedule with a series of gigs and festival appearances in coastal areas, using the track to spread the serious environmental message that our beaches, coastlines, rivers, cities and towns need to be kept litter and plastic free if society is to help prevent our oceans from becoming even more polluted by plastic waste.The concept for the new video is the brainchild of The Riptide Movements frontman Malachy Tuohy. Featuring beautifully powerful choreography from London-based dance duo Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn, the new video for Plastic Oceans is a visually compelling expression of the need for change in the way we produce, consume, and dispose of the inexplicable amounts of plastic globally on a daily basis.Speakingon the track, leadsinger Mal Tuohy states:"We're honoured that our music willhelp raise awareness of one of the greatest environmental challenges of ourtime. Our reliance on single use plastics is destroying our oceans, so well highlighted by David Attenborough in Blue Planet 2.As the saying goes, there are plenty more fish in the sea but if we cant stem the tide of plastic, by 2050 there'll be more plastic than fish in our oceans. The future is in our hands."
