Still going strong ten years after their debut, indie outfit Swim Deep return with an anthemic new single alongside the announcement of an upcoming tour.
‘Little Blue’ features an uplifting production from Dreamtrak, while the lyrics encourage us to stick with our hopes and dreams – no matter how old we are.
“There’s a couple of themes running through ‘Little Blue’. The lyrics came out as I was writing the melody and I just kept them in. When I look back at it and what I was feeling at the time, it was most probably about me and my fiancé, with a more general moniker for myself and the band too. ‘Here now we’re going to make it’ – is a reassurance that I’ve always needed. I’d like to think sometimes I don’t need it, but now more than ever I do. I’m 30 now, so that youthful foolish hopefulness is slowly being replaced by a crappy realism, but I still think we’re going to headline Madison Square Garden one day so that self belief hasn’t totally abandoned me just yet. And when we do, I’ll be singing this song.” – Austin Williams, Swim Deep
The group will play a series of shows across the UK, beginning in Southampton later this month. Tickets can be found here.
