Swim Deep aren’t the same band they used to be. With their new album Mothers we hear a fresh psychedelic side, and this is shown vividly in their track Namaste. The track opens with flashing keyboard bursts reminiscent of a 90s video game, but as the song continues the new, multicolour Swim Deep sound seeps through. Lead singer Austin Williams has packed a vocal punch in his vocals in this track with lyrics like, “If I sing like I mean it, then Birmingham is believing it”. If there was any doubt, Birmingham aren’t the only ones who believe in it.
