Swim Deep debut new video


Swim Deep

Moving in the same crowd as Birmingham group Peace, the three grunge-informed youths of Swim Deep like nothing more than to skate shopping centres, take shots, scope vinyl and – as is only natural, their being a band and all – make music. And rather nice music, at that.

I know all this because I’ve just seen the video for Swim Deep’s debut single ‘King City’. The band’s lovenote to Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg, it’s set for delivery via Chess Club Records on 14 May.

You too can experience the video, an oddly compelling log of the lo-fi West Midlands tourist trail, here:
