Tides from Nebula was formed in early 2008 in Warsaw. From the beginning, its line-up consisted of Maciej Karbowski (guitar and keyboards), Tomasz Stolowski (drums), Adam Waleszynski (guitar) and Przemek Weglowski (bass).
Prior to Tides From Nebula, Karbowski and Stolowski played together in another band, as did Waleszynski and Weglowski. "We rubbed shoulders in many clubs, at various festivals and concerts but we never met 'officially'", recalls Waleszynski in an interview. Eventually, they connected through the internet.
Their music could be described as rock, if it were not for the fact that they have never needed a vocalist. Tides from Nebula willingly points to ambient music as a source of inspiration, however, it is dynamicity and vividness that are most important in their compositions. Certainly, some of the stylistic influences which the band draws on are Mogwai and Sigur Ros - emotional guitar landscapes interspersed with tranquil fragments of intricately woven melodies. The musicians also declare an admiration for bands such as Pelican, Isis, Deftones, Radiohead, and even M83.
Their music is filled with melancholy and a kind of delight and curiosity about the world. If Tides From Nebula's music was used in a film, it would be a documentary about a place beyond humanity's reach, pristine like a desert or the depths of the ocean. Even before their first album was released, Maciej Karbowski said in an interview:
We are very much interested in the subject matter of space, but also in the natural environment - sea, vegetation, etc. We believe that the name of our group reflects the music and atmosphere of our compositions.
