- Cody Simpson & The Tide Premieres New Music Video for “Don't Let Me Go”
- Australian singer-songwriter Cody Simpson and his band the Tide have dropped a new music video for “Don't Let Me Go”.
The video features Cody Simpson, Lorynn York, Shareef Addo and Ryan McCarthy, directed by Taylor Curran and Cody Simpson. The clip draws a story of infatuation and young love in Los Angeles with black and white footages.
The song is their second single of the 2018, following the previously released single “Underwater” after their debut EP "Wave One" the release last year.
The track is an electric pop sound with the synth-beats unlike the EP "Wave One".
Cody Simpson said of their music after the debut EP "Wave One" in an interview with Billboard;
"It's definitely a step for me musically. When we got back in the studio after [Wave One], we were all much more interested in creating something fresher and more modern, more lively and colorful -- that’s where we’re at now musically. My drummer and bass player and co-producers have been working quite diligently at less live production and more programmed production. That was a major asset and a major improvement. Making this kind of music was an extreme and immense growth period. We experimented a lot, we were working on music from rock to reggae to blues to pop and incorporating all of those influences, and this is what we came up with."
- Cody Simpson debuted a solo artist in 2012 and has released three albums "Paradise", "Surfers Paradise" and "Free". Also he is known for a collaboration song "Home to Mama" with Justin Bieber in 2015.
He formed his own band with Adrian Cota (drums) and Shareef "Reef" Addo (bass) in 2017. He released the debut EP "Wave One" as Cody Simpson & The Tide.
