Single Review: Swim Deep - 'To My Brother'.
The band have managed to maintain their own distinctive style without imitating such an iconic era of music. Austin William's haunting gospel style vocals, pared back lyrics and energetic baselines provided by Cavan McCarthy, notably contribute to this seamless track to create a zesty, synth-soaked and totally original throwback to psychedelia.
Williams has described the track as taking influence from both Kanye West's album 'Yeezus' and Fleetwod Mac's 'Rumors', combing modern dance music - evident in Zachary Robinson's drumming patterns - with a neo-paychedelic flair, signalling a new direction in achieving the band's aspirations; "We wanted to radicalise chart music," Williams told NME. An ambitious role to take on, but one that was executed flawlessly. This hypnotic anthem will carry you back to the late 70s and yet keep you excited for the band's future. We cannot wait to hear the rest of the album.
