New Music: Go Swim - Surrender
Unsigned Northern Irish 5 piece Go Swim featured on Breaking More Waves back in 2014, and now they're back after what they describe as a 'transitional 2015' with a new song. Surrender certainly gives a nod to the likes of early Foals with its nervy and twitchy guitars, but if anything it's more immediate and accessible. If Cassius was indie pop but with indie taking 80% of the share then Surrender gets closer to a 50-50 split. Basically if you're the sort of indie fan that prefers music that sounds like it's five seconds away from destruction then Surrender probably won't be for you, as this is a tune with a sense of purpose, even if that purpose is just to make you dance and enjoy life.
The song comes complete with an accompanying 'I'm on my holidays and I've got a selfie stick' video (which you can see via this link here) and is released via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc on the 5th May, but you can stream it now from Soundcloud below.
