Who? Swimming Girls
A bit about: Oh no another female led electro-pop group. Yes, Chvrches‘ success has meant that the industry has started to be inundated by sound-a-like acts, but The Bristol based quartet (Vanessa, Jay, Roo and Max) have already gained attention from Radio One DJs Greg James and Huw Stephens and their latest excellent dream/electro-pop single Back Of Your Car has been collecting ‘Single of the Week’ accolades all across the internet universe. So maybe they could be worth a listen?
What to say: Well you know those perfect songs that play over the end credits of your favourite film? All of Swimming Girls tracks fit that criteria perfectly and 2 Kids may have been the best pop song that you never heard last year!
The maths: LadyHawke + Lorde – Courtney Barnett
The releases: Back Of Your Car is their first release of the year. Last year they brought out two equally quality singles, with 2 Kids and Tastes Like Money – though no news on an album as yet.
See them yourself: They have just completed a tour supporting Fickle Friends and are due to be performing at the Great Escape festival in Brighton in May, with more dates to come in the near future.
