2. King City
Following their (alleged and acclaimed) paean to Warpaint’s Jenny Lee Lindberg earlier this year with ‘King City’, the Birmingham quartet have quietly gone about honing their live sound, acquired a new bass player and signed on the dotted line with Chess Club Records.
The first fruits of this newly inked deal is the single ‘Honey’ and sees them inhabiting a dreamy blissed out backdrop that they appear to have made their own amongst like minded souls - an escape route from the day to day humdrum. Hard to pin down, be it beach-grunge, surf-rock or any other sub genre, Swim Deep resonate with a feel good vibe and ‘Honey’ is a perfect partner to it’s predecessor and a mere skinny dip in the musical waters as anyone who has seen the band can testify.
'She Changes The Weather' is released on May 12th on Chess Club / RCA Victor taken off the band's debut record 'Where The Heaven Are We' out on 29th July. You can watch the stunning new video for 'She Changes the Weather' below
Having decamped to East London for studio sessions with Charlie Hugall (Florence & The Machine), the band recreated their summer with singer Austin recording vocals whilst standing in a mini beach paradise within the studio, inflatable toys were optional – pics available on request...
‘Honey’ is released on Chess Club Records and will be available on 7” vinyl and digitally via all usual outlets. Swim Deep will also be heading out on tour as support to Spector throughout October and November.
