Swim Team - New Year

Swim Team - New Year
Swim Team's debut album, Home Time, was conceived over the course of two years. Fragments of key songwriters Sammy and Krystal’s lives filtered through into their songs, over time these loose threads began to fit together to form a multi-coloured tapestry that became the album. Thematically, Home Time lusts for change and despairs over the lack of it. Many songs provide a window into a relationship: broken, beginning or ending.

Musically it’s all filtered through an imperfect DIY indie pop lens. The album is a clear move forward from their debut 6 track tape, a more rough and ready affair with simple snappy pop songs. Home Time presents a more nuanced sound for the band that sees them creating mood through interwoven guitar parts and dynamic structures whilst not forsaking the 3-minute nugget completely. Guitars jangle soaked in reverb over characteristic group vocals, kooky lead breaks mingle with wandering bass lines over a solid bedrock of discerning drums. Slower dreamier numbers sit side by side with more up-beat ramshackle pop. Each track feeds into Home Time’s themes of introspection, frustration and realisation making for an album that quite aptly captures the many facets of change.

About this track...

Laden with an atmospheric, moody aesthetic, "New Year" celebrates fresh beginnings, new resolutions, while paying homage to the good intentions and bad realities that inevitably take their place.
