“The Tidal Track” saw Johnny Rock working with his cousins Anthony Nardino and Joseph Nardino. Close friends since childhood, each neurotic in his own way, the trio has recorded various video and music projects through the years (if you just remembered “The Monkey Show,” you know us too well).

With Johnny’s friends Max Feinstein and Greg Gutjahr, the team wrote the music for “The Tidal Track” in a single 8-hour session. The lyrics (which then took almost a year to complete) are based on the revival of an old guitar once owned by the Nardinos’ late uncle, the impact of Superstorm Sandy on the eastern seaboard, and the fiery destruction of Funtown Pier in Seaside Park, NJ. “The Tidal Track” features homemade sound effects generated entirely on a Moog Rogue analog synthesizer, meant to emulate the sounds of the Jersey shore in summer. Gerald Daniel was recommended by Joseph to deliver the lead vocal.
