Swimming Girls blaze into 2019 with their incandescent new single ‘1 2 Many’ - their first musical offering of the year, and the first taste of what is to come on a brand-new EP ‘Existential Fears’ due for release on June 7th on Yucatan.
Hand in hand with new music are a pair of headline shows that have just been confirmed for Swimming Girls. They’ll play Bristol’s Exchange on June 10th, before heading to London on the 11th to play The Lexington to celebrate the release of the EP. Before then, they’ll play The Great Escape and Dot-to-dot Festival.
The band formed as part of a ‘musical project’ whilst they were all studying separately in Bath - put together entirely randomly and asked to, quite simply, ‘write a song’. Finding common ground with a group fixation on the warmth and nostalgia of 70’s and 80’s pop culture, the bands inspiration all comes from the same sources – The Cure, Cyndi Lauper, Culture Club alongside cult films like ‘Heathers’ and the timeless work of David Lynch.
