Swimming Tapes have revealed their first new material of 2017, in the form of new single "Queen’s Parade" released on independent label Hand in Hive. Produced by Adam Jaffrey (Palace, Gengahr, Leif Erikson) and taken from their soon to be announced EP, "Queen's Parade" effortlessly oozes wonderful nostalgic shoegaze guitar, delightful swirling vocal harmonies, and driving positive percussion. For those that have been listening to Swimming Tapes Souvenirs EP, "Queen’s Parade" is ever so slightly more dynamic, somehow equipped with a subtle 'live-ness' to the recordings, it still encompasses the light, charming, summery vein we love so much, and we're not the only ones. Due to play The Line of Best Fit showcase at The Great Escape this very evening alongside hotly anticipated CHINAH and Sigrid, the band have also announced a headline show at The Lexington September 20th. All in all surely making Swimming Tapes one's to watch.
