Swim Deep – King City

Released May 14th on Chess Club Recordings

Evoking blissful summer days and carefree moments, King City is a jaunty insouciant tune from Birmingham band Swim Deep. The simple almost tossed away chorus of ‘with the sun on my back it’s a nice day,’ its fuzzy warmth, drumming footprint, and the thrilling pace of the tune make it one to put on repeat. On the surface it’s an ode to Jerry Lee Lindberg (the Warpaint bassist), summers lazing on the beach, skating with friends, downing shots and flicking through vinyl (as seen on the video by Marshall Darlings), and its beauty is in realizing that it doesn’t need to get any deeper than that. Contentedness never sounded so good.
