Just Watch: Glass Caves – Swim

Glass Caves

Words: Leander Hobbs

Two years after the DIY success of Alive, Glass Caves are back with another single packed full of natural Northern charm. Swim sees the band dive into something a little more dark and atmospheric.

The unmistakable voice of Matthew Hallas is affecting. The grit is still there but it has been smoothed down like a pebble in the tide for a more restrained and metrical styling in the verses building to a big blockbuster sound in the wide sweeping chorus.

Swim isn’t just another song in the Alive stable, the last two years have produced a more refined and elegant approach to song writing that surely places Glass Caves firmly in the ranks of Northern heroes.

Swim is out this month (April) via Scruff of the Neck – go on jump in!
