Cody Simpson and His New Band Perform Live for First Time: Watch

It’s official: We have a fave new chill band. Cody Simpson & The Tide, stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest and performed one of their hit new tracks, “Sun Go Down,” live for the first time. 

The Australian hunk previously described the new group as “zen spontaneity” and we couldn’t agree more. The threesome, as Cody previously explained, came together after Cody spent the summer living in Venice Beach. 

“Practicing guitar, surfing and writing poetry and songs in the streets of vibrant Southern California, I was met with an intense surge of musical and literary energy,” he shared. “I conceived of a concept, a project, a band: The Tide. A project that could encourage fellow youth to strive for the state of flow I experienced that summer. A fluidity that the ocean’s tide exemplifies so flawlessly. The way of the tide. The sun and the moon. Zen spontaneity.”

The group also just dropped their first EP, Wave One. Watch their first-ever acoustic performance above.
