Hotly-tipped London band Swimming Tapes have finally announced their debut album: it's called Morningside and comes out on May 24th through Hand In Hive. In conjunction with the announcement, the band has shared a charming new single called 'Pyrenees'. Speaking about the track, they say:

““Pyrenees” is a sweet little bop of a pop song. It might only clock in at two and a half minutes but we still managed to get two different guitar solos in there. The song’s about what follows an argument with a loved one, that middle of the night feeling when you realise actually you’re the one in the wrong.”

Despite being a song that focuses on those middle-of-the-night worries, 'Pyrenees' is a melodic ray of sunshine that will have no problem worming its way into your mind from the opening strums. The delicacy of the vocal points to the meekness of feeling when you realise that you've done wrong, and even though the refrain is "in the end you keep me up all night alone," there is a sighing quality that admits that its really one's own fault that you can't sleep. The two brief guitar solos portray these nocturnal thoughts fluttering off into happier places, memories of happier times resplendent with deeper feeling than the discomfort brought on by a minor squabble. By the end of 'Pyrenees', Swimming Tapes have delivered us back to a place of love and happiness, feeling that whatever might have passed between these people the night before will surely evaporate in the light of a new day.
