Review – New Space Boys single – Swim

The song starts with the driving bass line played out to you all nice and fuzzy like in true Space Boys fashion. Introducing the rest of the parts, the guitar remains disjointed and eery, keeping your focus on the gloom and despairing lyrical content. As the song builds, the backing vocals emphasise the pain and the key change into the break will keep you listening through to the next verse.

A great build up is introduced in this song, one of the dirtiest Space Boys songs in my opinion so far. I feel they’re starting to audibly express themselves properly. Not just experimenting with sounds and structure but emphasising areas and creating drive and push from simplicity. The song isn’t a get up and dance song. You listen, you feel for them, you connect. They’ve just released a cracker of a film clip for the track so feast your eyes on that bessy.

It’s available for download on their bandcamp – name your price. So get to it, craft your own opinion and head to one of their shows.
