Swim Deep – Where The Heaven Are We

AT the moment it seems like hip-hop and rhythm and blues are taking over the music scene.

Only this week, Arctic Monkeys revealed that their forthcoming album AM, is heavily influenced by the likes of Dr Dre and the American soul music scene.

So where to look if you want some good ol’ indie rock? Well Swim Deep’s newest release should give you something to dig your teeth into.

Where The Heaven Are We is the debut album from the Birmingham rockers. And it’s rather good...

Combining raw guitar and drum riffs along with some trippy distortion, tracks such as King City and The Sea stand out as the band’s finest work.

After a summer of playing festivals across Europe, you can hear why the band are talked about as one of the scene’s best new acts.

Stray will undeniably become the chilled-out anthem for the remainder of the summer. All you need to do is give it a listen; it’ll no-doubt find a place in your playlist...
