Swim Deep have released a new single.
‘Little Blue’ follows on from their ‘Familiarise Yourself With Your Closest Exit’ EP released in March, and arrives alongside news of a November headline tour.
Austin Williams says: “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.”
