Swim Deep's debut LP is characterised by the blissed-out delivery of its romantic lyrics.
These words, delivered by frontman Austin Williams, come backed by gleeful instrumentation, encompassing bright synth sounds, chorus- and reverb-layered guitars, and subtle but tasteful drum beats.
With many tipping these Birmingham indie sorts for success, a debut album as accomplished and hit-laden as this makes it hard to see the band faltering.
Single ‘King City’ is an instant classic, and each track here is brimming with the love these musicians crave, feel, and so earnestly want to share.
