Shock of the New: Olympic Swimmers
We get to know Glasgow up-comers, all sparkly guitars and harmonies...
YOU MAYBE UNKNOWN TO:
Glasgow 5 piece Olympic Swimmers.
IF IT WERE POSSIBLE FOR TWO WOMEN TO PRO-CREATE:
Then Susie Smilie’s vocals would be the product of an encounter between Liz Fazer and Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval.
OLYMPIC SWIMMERS SWIM IN A POOL OF:
Melancholic lyricism, melodic lo-fi guitar riffs and a ripple of summer dazed tones.
Debut album, No Flags Will Fly, was released earlier this summer and was produced by Iain Cook (formerly of Scottish outfit of Aereogramme). New single, Knots, will be released on the 17th September. With critically acclaimed comments beginning to pile up from the Highlands, it shouldn’t be long until they snowball down South.
