Ride by SWIM. published on 2012/09/04 10:06:00 +0000 London outfit Swim announce their debut single Ride Lyrics: As I lay here, she kisses on my skin, A heat to get lost in, But you know I'm so lost to you As you run run run run run Run away from what's begun as you run run run run run But just let go, because you know I'm with you, You know I've left it all behind Down with you I'm crystal clear in this postcard paradise Sinking right out of sight in defracted sunlight And the bliss of being in breathless Is all that's in my head As you run run run run run Run away from what's begun as you run run run run run But just let go, because you know Bio: Swim are an English electronic band comprising of Joe & Rich, two multi-instrumentalists based in Brixton, South London. Outside, surrounding their Brixton studio, echoes of the night’s headliners, guys playing steel drums to make some change, running battles and couples snatching hurried kisses in the street have all had their effect on the music. Swim craft a compelling sound combing new wave electronics, stunning songwriting, and Joe’s endearing, captivating vocal. A love for Talking Heads, Bowie and Tom Tom Club fuses with lush shoegaze melodies and a dance sensibility to bring us the Ride EP; two moments of pure electro-pop perfection that set this band apart as an extraordinary new prospect. Originally hailing from somewhere boring in Surrey, and meeting by chance at school, they bonded after discovering a mutual disinterest for Maths and a burgeoning love of music; Skulking off from class the numerically challenged duo found that Rich's love of rock and Joe's love of electronic music formed an unlikely but complimentary equation even they could calculate. Both slickly produced by super-hot London techno-bod Attaque, A-side Ride is an autumn postcard from a summer fling whilst Hold On is the apprehensive excitement having met someone new. Swim will take to the road with a full band for their first live shows in winter 2012.
