Tidal Wave is the debut studio album by Canadian indie pop rock band Young Liars. It was released June 24, 2014 via Nettwerk. [2]

Indie pop is a music genre and subculture that combines guitar pop with DIY ethic in opposition to the style and tone of mainstream pop music. It originated from British post-punk in the late 1970s and subsequently generated a thriving fanzine, label, and club and gig circuit. Compared to its counterpart, indie rock, the genre is more melodic, less abrasive, and relatively angst-free. In later years, the definition of indie pop has bifurcated to also mean bands from unrelated DIY scenes/movements with pop leanings. Subgenres include chamber pop and twee pop.

Young Liars is a Canadian indie rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their musical style is upbeat and has been described as "synth-infused pop rock".
