Tidelands is the musical collaboration between songwriter / guitar and flugelhorn player Gabriel Montana Leis and drummer /keyboardist Mie Araki. Sharp poignant songs with poetic lyrics are uniquely arranged with looped guitars and vocals, glorious horns, Moog synth bass lines, and boy / girl harmonies.
Tidelands' new album We've Got A Map: "Each song is composed of layer upon layer of flugelhorn, moog synth, guitar, and drums ... Because we know that Leis and Araki are the only members of the band, listening to We’ve Got A Map becomes a mental challenge in imagining how Tidelands would manage to play each song at a live performance." - Mayumi Okamoto - The Owl Mag
