Single: Go Swim - Surrender

Go Swim - Surrender

Info: Long-term blog favourites Go Swim from Belfast return after a year-long break from song writing and take up the baton from where they left off with another addictive rock-pop single in the form of 'Surrender' (above). It's not often I get apprehensive about a band slowly drifting off and winding up unintentionally, but I did think that might have been the case here and thankfully those concerns are no longer. 

There's something about the guitar sound that sounds familiar but is distinctly theirs, and this was exemplified perfectly on 2014's Animal E.P., in particular on 'Call Sign' (below) which is worth revisiting. A good chunk of their hiatus has been spent promoting unsigned and up and coming Irish bands from all around the country as well, and they count BBC6 Radio and 2FM's Dan Hegarty among their fans. Hopefully 'Surrender' won't be standalone and a new E.P. is in the offing.
