The Summertides hail from Exmouth. A quaint coastal town in Devon, England, Exmouth has imbued their unique music with all the sex, love and carnal debauchery of the traditional British seaside. Echo at the Carnival is a truly personal and intriguing biography of songwriter Simon Richardson, who takes you on a musical journey of all the highs and lows that come with a few nights well spent. The album has a beautiful uplifting tone, and the quality of lyrics and arrangement lead you to get continual pleasure with each listen. In Echo at the Carnival, the summertides have created a sound to fall in love with and a sound to fall in love to. This is a sound for a new summer of love; this time more sensuous, more bizarre and more honest than ever.
