Swim Deep return with new single 'Little Blue'

Following the release of their much-loved EP 'Familiarise Yourself With Your Closest Exit' earlier this year, Swim Deep have now returned to share a brand new single.

The new track 'Little Blue' was produced by frequent collaborator Dreamtrak (Foals), and coincides with the announcement of a forthcoming UK headline tour later this year.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Austin Williams said, "There’s a couple of themes running through 'Little Blue'. The lyrics came out as I was writing the melody and I just kept them in. When I look back at it and what I was feeling at the time, it was most probably about me and my fiancé, with a more general moniker for myself and the band too. "Here now we’re going to make it" -- is a reassurance that I've always needed. I'd like to think sometimes I don’t need it, but now more than ever I do. I'm 30 now, so that youthful foolish hopefulness is slowly being replaced by a crappy realism, but I still think we’re going to headline Madison Square Garden one day so that self belief hasn’t totally abandoned me just yet. And when we do, I'll be singing this song."

24 September - Heartbreakers, Southampton
15 October - Live At Leeds, Leeds
