Swim Deep are a band that I've been intending to listen to for some time, and their debut released this year did not disappoint.
'Where the Heaven Are We' is a great attempt at a first album, and good fun to listen to. Most of the songs are very easy to play anytime, and because the style is quite similar to early nineties indie music, it is right up my street. If you enjoy bands like The Charlatans, and more recent artists like Peace, I can unhesitatingly recommend it.
There is a great vibe which comes from the album, the quality is incredibly consistent, with fantastic melodies and uplifting songs which don't disappear as the record goes on. Personal favourites of mine include the title track, 'King City' and 'Francisco'.
If you enjoy Britpop style music at it's peak, pick up 'Where the Heaven Are' today. I hope that these talented young guys continue to make albums like 'Where The Heaven Are We', because I am eagerly awaiting the next one.
