As work on their debut album begins...
Swimming Tapes

In case you haven't been following them on social media, London indie pop types Swimming Tapes have kicked off work on their debut album.

It's not before time, either; live shows are a treat, while each successive release has presented a fine line in beautifully bittersweet songwriting.

To launch their journey into album territory Swimming Tapes have shared an acoustic version of fan favourite 'Tides', and it's quite the poignant gem.

Draped in reverb, the gently plucked guitar line seems to wring out fresh emotion from the songwriting, while the hushed vocals have a gorgeous sense of restraint.

Tune in below.
