I hope that there are at least a couple of folk wondering where we’ve disappeared to so here’s a quick update for you. Sorry for the wait for another album, I’d really like to blame the ever increasing number of other projects/bands that my fellow bandmates are involved in but the truth is that I spent most of 2013 pregnant and the first half of 2014 getting used to having a mini Swimmer. Having started to emerge from that fog now the game is afoot again with finishing recording and we will hopefully manage to play live again before the end of the year. In short, we haven’t disappeared and we will try and get this album out as soon as we can.
If you don’t have our first album you can buy it here: http://www.olympicswimmers.co.uk/music
Meanwhile, the other Swimmers have been busy in a variety of capacities from Emergency Dep to Official Wikipedia-d Member in:
No Flags Will Fly is number 17, with a thoroughly deserved top 3 of Karine Polwart, Lau and Admiral Fallow. It’s also especially sweet to see Holy Mountain, Miaoux Miaoux and The Unwinding Hours on the list, as they have all contributed musically to Olympic Swimmers in the past year, either through playing guitar/bass for us, remixing our songs or recording our album. If you haven’t checked out their own music yet, I implore you to do so immediately.
We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting Admiral Fallow on their forthcoming UK tour. Please come down early and say hello if we’re playing near you on any of these dates.
