Single Review – Swim Deep – To My Brother

Birmingham’s Swim Deep had talked of shaving their heads and going to war with their upcoming second studio album as they offer up a ‘new direction’ on their sound. The lead single ‘To My Brother’ certainly doesn’t sound like it’s on a linear course from their last album with more of a sonically charged piece of Madchester pop straight out of 1990. There is certainly a more expansive and sweeping nature to this track with the echoed and more mature vocals and the washing electronica. It certainly isn’t offering a new take or original perspective from the group, but it’s a slight improvement nonetheless. Don’t expect it to blow anyone away cause it won’t.
