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."
