PREMIERE | SWIM SEASON – ‘GOLD CLOAK CITY’ (BEACH SESSIONS)
After making waves with the synth heavy single, ‘Soldiers’ late last year, Melbourne indie-poppers, Swim Season, have returned with ‘Gold Cloak City’, the second single off their debut EP, Cascades. The single was officially released on Monday, but the guys have followed up quickly, teaming up with Head On Media to film a stripped back, live version of the track, along the coast of Aireys Inlet. Performing in front of a pretty picturesque backdrop, Swim Season translate their riff heavy single into a raw, yet breezy number, proving that they are not afraid to expose themselves a little. The song is dominated by the band’s intertwining vocals and although they’ve clearly stepped up the studio production with Cascades, the acoustic version of ‘Gold Cloak City’ shows how much work they put into their live performances.
On the topic of live performances, you can catch Swim Season at Grace Darling this Friday night for the official launch of ‘Gold Cloak City’ alongside Sydney’s Bad Pony and Reika! The guys also have an acoustic performance on March 24 at Kit & Ace and will be appearing at The Hills Are Alive Festival on March 27. Exciting times ahead!
