The First Wave Defines The Beach

Alpha Tide are a four-piece Alternative Rock Band from Devon. We have one simple mission: “Be the first wave…” Every morning as the tide goes out, the landscape of the shoreline is changed and that’s where this band comes in. Crafting original, unique songs with heartfelt lyrics and melodic rhythm, Alpha Tide are about bringing something new and different.
