Swimming Tapes

The five piece newcomers - singing guitarists Robbie Reid and Louis Price, guitarist Jason Hawthorne, Paddy Conn on bass and drummer Andrew Evans - have been enjoying wide-spread praise since their self-released debut Souvenirs in March this year.

Its follow-up Set The Fire - premiered by Radio 1s Phil Taggart and covered by the likes of DIY, Indie Shuffle and The Line Of Best Fit - hit number 1 on the Amazing Radio chart, went on to reach the HypeM top 3 and has clocked-up nearly 100k SoundCloud streams and 150k plays on Spotify.

Tides, which sees Price take the lead vocal duties for the first time, continues along the dream-pop theme that is effortlessly winning over Swimming Tapes fans: woozy, reverb-drenched layers of guitar and a warm, bouncing bass line provide the hazy bed for the gorgeously languid melody to paint another bucolic and beautifully nostalgic picture.

Of the track the band explain : Some memories are perfected by the passing of time, become dreamlike, intensified by the imagination. Tides is about those kind of memories, a plea to somehow go back in time and live in their magic.

With comparisons ranging from Real Estate to Belle & Sebastian, Swimming Tapes are fresh off the back of a headline Communion club night show and will play Londons Mirrors Festival on 29 October alongside the likes of Bat For Lashes, Allah-Las and Bill Ryder-Jones.
