Single Review: Swim Season — 'Collide'

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Melbourne quintet Swim Season have unveiled their new single ‘Collide’. Known around Melbourne-town for their lively shows, Swim Season are on the rise and are set to have a big finish to 2017 if ‘Collide’ is anything to go by. 

‘Collide’ is an emotionally charged number lavished with gorgeous atmospheric soundscapes. The intriguing thing about the track is that the backdrop sounds minimal, and there isn’t any extreme exuberance dominating the instrumentals, yet you can feel the weight of emotions in it. I particularly love how the delicate nature of the track works with the vocals to create something so impassioned and heartfelt. The vigour in their instruments kicks in towards the end, bringing the track full circle.

Swim Seasons’ new single ‘Collide’ shows a glimmer of what we can expect from their new music, and we’re ready for more.
