Our long awaited British summertime is drawing to a close, but fear not Brighton; for as we throw in the BBQ’s and bikinis and make way for unsightly scarves and unflattering winter socks your Aunt bought you last Christmas, a swarm of great bands are hitting the shores of Brighton to undoubtedly make our Autumn just that little bit more bearable.

One band to certainly keep your eyes open for are British indie band ‘Swim Deep’ who are set to play Brighton’s Concorde 2 this September. Formed in 2012 by lead vocalist Austin Williams, the band have risen to fame from rather modest backgrounds over the past two years and are making quite an impression within the indie rock scene. Their reputation for their feel good psychedelic indie rock tunes and lovably offbeat, threadbare fashion has rocketed following the release of their single ‘King City’ after being signed to Chess Club and touring with indie rock band Spector in the winter of 2012. The band has made several appearances at festivals such as The Great Escape and Tramlines and Beacons and have accompanied the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Bastille and the Mystery Jets.

Their debut album ‘Where The Heaven Are We’, released this August and has been described by singer Austin Williams as:

“…a feel-good vibe, a positive take on music. I think we got bored of sad music and people moaning…You need some pump in your veins. I feel bad for people who don’t do what they love, who hate what they do. I feel frustrated on their behalf. This album is for them.”

So to fans of kaleidoscopic dream pop and boys with long hair, this is definitely not a gig to be missed. Tickets are selling fast, so grab whatever change is left in your coat pockets and get your tickets now!
