Riptides is set in Australia in 1974 and 1975. These were the years of early disco, pop, funk, reggae, glam rock, hard rock, and heavy metal. Punk and hip-hop were on the horizon. Film scores were elevated to art form. The two narrators of Riptides are in their mid-twenties when the story opens. This is the music they listen to and love.
