The Owl Mag had this to say about “Rising Tide”:
“Twin Cities power-pop quartet, The Melismatics, have done it again…their catchy guitar licks and synth-driven melodies do anything but make us want to take our foot off the pedal or turn down the volume for that matter…grab a copy of Rising Tide and dance, dance, dance.”

This college admittance essay Sunday, October 6th at 6PM tune into The Current 89.3FM in the Twin Cities, MN or stream it from anywhere to hear some of the new tracks from “Rising Tide” on The Local Show.
