SWIMMING TAPES Announce Headline Belfast Show at VOODOO on Friday 1st November 2019

London guitar band, Swimming Tapes are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at Voodoo on Friday 01st November 2019. The band release their debut album ‘Morningside’ on May 24th of this year.

Sublime, blissful, and sun-drenched, Morningside is the appropriately titled debut album from Swimming Tapes - due 24th May via London indie label Hand In Hive. The album was recorded at Swimming Tapes’ favourite London studio: a tiny space tucked behind an old pub in Haggerston, East London, where the indie five-piece now reside.

The studio is a regular haunt of the band’s long-time collaborator Paddy Baird, who produced and engineered the album, and is packed full of vintage equipment including a 1970’s SLS desk which gives this album its sepia tones. In-keeping with their vintage approach, a good chunk of this album (drums, bass, and rhythm guitar) was recorded live in the round with the band then layering vocals and additional guitar flourishes over the top. The record was then mixed at Wilco’s Chicago studio The Loft by Tom Schick (Real Estate, Iron & Wine). It’s a sound that’s simple to replicate on stage and lends a natural authenticity to their live show.
