about

Liverpool-born musician Ben Thomas’ new Leeds-based band Big Tide has announced the release of new single “Hide Me In Your Spaceship” to land on November 30th.

“Sure I’ll miss my family but I can’t stand this torturous town/I don’t care if we’re floating around ‘cause Gravity is dragging me down” Thomas sings in his signature northern vocal style as his 12-string guitars and acoustic strums take you on a journey into the cosmos. Taking influence from Big Star and Teenage Fanclub
“Hide Me In Your Spaceship” is a lovely little pop song about yearning to leave your hometown - something we can all relate to.

“A compact mini-epic 'Hide Me In Your Spaceship' is a stellar dose of imaginative guitar pop, with the guitar lines sounding like David Crosby left to go rogue in Birkenhead. It's a fun, love-lorn hymn, a neat encapsulation of what makes Big Tide such a wonderful, talented group.” Clash Music

lyrics

Hide me in your spaceship
Cause I’m the worst of a terrible kind
I’ll go anywhere with you captain
Let’s just leave the rest behind

Sure i’ll miss my family
I just can’t stand this torturous town
I don’t care if we’re floating around
Cause gravity is dragging me down

Cast off into oblivion
Riding velveteen waves of blue
Hide me in a corner I swear
I’ll hardly take up any room

I was born on a leap year
In a red brick rhetoric town
Tuck me under the covers
I never wanna touch the ground

Hide me, find me, fly me away
Miss me, kiss me, gravity waves

Let’s talk sleeping arrangements
You don’t wanna hear me snore
You’d feel a pea under a mattress princess
You’d feel a marble under the floor

I don’t mind the space food
And I’m not just being polite
But nearly all of it’s freeze dried
And dissolves at the speed of light

Hide me in your spaceship
Cause I’m the worst of a terrible kind
I’ll go anywhere with you captain
Let’s just leave the past behind

Sure I miss my family
But I don’t miss that torturous town
I don’t care that we’re floating in air
I don’t need gravity dragging me down

Fashion sense won’t pay your rent
You’re a plastic man in a paper tent
So you gaze out into the midnight sky
I hope I’m alive on the day you die

Hide me in your spaceship
Cause I’m the worst of a terrible kind
I’ll go anywhere with you captain
Let’s just leave the rest behind
