SWIMMER ONE 'THE REGIONAL VARIATIONS'

(Biophonic Records, 2007)

01 drowning nightmare 1
02 largs hum
03 national theatre
04 but my heart is broken
05 the fakester genocide
06 the balance company
07 drowning nightmare 2
08 whatever you do, don't go in the basement
09 regional
10 the dark ages
12 a petrol pump in the cradle of christianity

"There’s a lot of idiotic soulless electro pop around, so it’s a good job that Swimmer One are here to redress the balance. This stunning debut effort more than meets expectations raised by the Edinburgh and Glasgow-based duo’s promising set of single releases, and might just be the find of the year for the as-yet uninitiated. Kicking off with the mighty force of ‘Drowning Nightmare 1’’s soaring melody and anthemic fan favourite ‘Largs Hum’, The Regional Variations combines catchy choruses with minimal beats, atmospheric soundscapes and some incredibly original subject matter. Like a stripped-down Scottish Pet Shop Boys without the funny hats or a more melancholy synth-based Pulp, Swimmer One’s brilliance should be shouted from the rooftops."
