Swimming Tapes have released a new video ahead of their about-to-start headline tour

They hit the road from Thursday.

Swimming Tapes have shared a new video for ‘Easy Strand’.

The laidback tune is their first new material since last year’s ‘Soft Sea Blue’ EP, and comes ahead of an autumn tour which kicks off later this week.

Director Laurie Barraclough says: “A song about nostalgia needed a video about nostalgia, so we rented a vintage Renault 12 and shot the video like a home-movie. This might be the first one-take, time-bending home movie ever shot? Long car journeys (in the rain) are a big part of growing up and we wanted a video that was exactly that.”

The tour dates read:

15 Manchester Yes
16 Glasgow Poetry Club
18 Leeds Oporto
19 Bristol Rough Trade Records
20 London Moth Club
