Death Of Hi Fi are an Oxford based electronica and hip hop influenced three piece whose first single with new singer Lucy Cropper was released on 9 October. Swim Away is a dream-pop like piece of woozy electronica with lyrics that match that feel, with the song’s central theme focusing on escapism. Sparse guitars and break-beats interplay with lush orchestration throughout, peaking at the song’s irresistible chorus, producing a superb song.
It’s a supremely confident and impressive single which adds to the trio’s fast growing reputation as one to watch. The track is the lead track from the Swim Away e.p. on which you’ll also find the Truck Mix of that track and one of the band’s older songs, Lazarus, both of which are well worth checking out. Swim Away is the real star here though and it’s today’s Track Of The Day
