The funky disco bop of Anglo/Australian band Double Talk‘s ‘Swimming’ is positively incandescent and guaranteed to get the most lethargic soul up, down and twisting around.

According to the Gold Coast band, ‘Swimming’ was conceived in a caravan in northern NSW and recorded across Switzerland and the UK whilst the band supported Gang Of Youths on a European tour:

Inspired by Talking Heads and The Meters ‘Simming’ is a song of self reflection. It reminds us to embrace unsavoury feelings, and that we are all lucky to be experiencing life in some way.

There is an infectious groove and soaring chorus:

Double Talk are about to tour across Europe, with a string of festival appearances, headline shows, and
supporting Swedish multi-instrumentalist, Plàsi – details and tickets available here.

Double Talk formed somewhat accidentally whilst living in Leeds, England. Their music has gone on to receive BBC Radio 1 play in the UK, and an official Triple J add in Australia. The band has undertaken several tours through Europe and Australia, with the likes of Gang of Youths, Ladyhawke, Donny Benét, King Stingray, and San Cisco.
