WATCH Swimming Girls - '1 2 Many'

Swimming Girls are one of my favourite new bands of the last couple of years and it is always a joy to see that they are releasing new music - I'm loving 1 2 Many, their first new music for the year. I caught the band last May at The Great Escape and loved the tracks Beneath YouAsking For It and Back of Your Car which they released across the year. The new single follows in the waves those tracks made - support tours with Fickle Friends and Pale Waves for one - and is accompanied by a superb new video featuring lead singer Vanessa.

Some pretty exciting news to add - sitting down to write this I've just seen news that the band have come in the top three of the Emerging Talent Competition for Glastonbury Festival. Thousands of entries were whittled down to a longlist of 90 by online music writers, and a shortlist of 8 acts played for judges on Saturday evening. As runners up, they'll receive a talent development bursary from the PRS Foundation and get a slot at the festival, so a huge well done to the band!!

They've just announced a couple of headline shows - grab tickets for those and check their upcoming festival performances out on the Yucatan Records site here.

10th June: Exchange, Bristol
11th June: The Lexington, London
