What do you get if you cross The Super Furry Animals with The Diff'rent Strokes? Actually the Diff'rent Strokes thing falls apart under close scrutany, but despite being Scottish, the SFA thing remains. Trust me.
'We Just Make Music For Ourselves' has been around for a while, only getting real release at the end of January, with, as the title suggests, a message of indie-individualism that you'll hear most bands spout at least once in their lives, but sometimes they actually do mean it..
"but we don’t do this to be different. we don’t do it to be cool (although it is, obviously)."
And though the smell of The KLF might hang around the band (they're making an EP of a £50 grocery shopping session, costing £50 a copy) you can't say The KLF didn't make a few well targeted records in their time. Sometimes you can aim for throwaway pop and actually do it well...
"now we just kiss your lips for three minutes, then we’re gone. we’ve moved on"
This is indie-electronica for a new millennium, but are they (Swimmer) one to watch out for this year? Perhaps, yes...
