Listen Up! No.93: Swimming - Sun in the Island

Midlands quintet Swimming’s debut release on East Village Radio records sounds like an amalgamation of the most humdrum of jargonated indie-speak and rock wittery... ‘kaleidoscopes of sound’, ‘sonic exploration’, ‘textural dexterity’, ‘waves of electronica decorating a psych-ambient canvas’ – just the kind of verbose guff you might be used to reading on these very pages, then. Thankfully, the salient information is that all of the above are sewn together with obvious melodies and an agreeable nod to the ostentatious. See, I just can’t seem to stop.

Sun in the Island’ is released on 7 March. This special ‘Binaural Solstice’ video version, performed live in what seems to amount to a poorly built contemporary igloo, strips back the single edit to good effect.
