Sublime, blissful, and solar-drenched, ‘Morningside’ is the appropriately titled debut album from Swimming Tapes – thanks 24th May by means of London indie label Hand In Hive. There’s a beguiling melancholy at engage in on this album amidst it’s heat sonic ambiance and as the refrain of ‘Pyrenees’ states: “In the conclusion you will maintain me up all night alone”.
‘Morningside’ was recorded at Swimming Tapes’ favourite London studio: a very small room tucked at the rear of an aged pub in Haggerston, East London, where by the indie 5-piece now reside. The studio is a regular haunt of the band’s extended-time collaborator Paddy Baird, who made and engineered the album and is packed whole of vintage machines including a 1970’s SLS desk which offers this album its sepia tones. In-preserving with their classic approach, which also sees just minimal generation employed all over, a good chunk of this album (drums, bass, and rhythm guitar) was recorded dwell in the spherical with the band then layering vocals and more guitar thrives about the prime. The record was then combined at Wilco’s Chicago studio The Loft by Tom Schick (Genuine Estate, Iron & Wine). It’s a audio that is easy to replicate on stage and lends a normal authenticity to their are living present.
Thematically, ‘Morningside‘ is a reflective album. Personal memories underlie the bulk of these tracks, which were collectively in the bedroom of guide vocalist & guitarist Louis Cost. In the course of the process, Swimming Tapes revelled in the added room that the album format provides and dug down subject matter issues that had been more challenging to compose about than every little thing on their previously EPs, the outcome is something much much more particular in character.
But nothing right here is way too hefty. ‘Morningside’ is warm in all the appropriate regions. Sparkling and sonically vivid, this is a report that will brighten your working day cheer you up and mail you on your way.
