Swim School

The last year has changed everyone, and everything.

And so it is for Edinburgh’s swim school who emerged fitter and stronger into 2021 with their singles Let Me Inside Your Head and Outside, two powerful and urgent songs that thrills the bands existing fans and won them many more.

The  addition of new drummer Billy McMahon, an acute observation of the turbulent world around them and a commitment to developing their craft means that Let Me Inside Your Head is a more lyrically direct and muscular sounding swim school than before and sits as comfortable alongside Ride or Smashing Pumpkins as it does Foals or Wolf Alice.

With a BBC Introducing session under their belts already this year, their debut EP scheduled for August (just ahead of a headline show at the iconic King Tuts Wah Wah Hut) and festival appearances the length and breadth of the country, 2021 is shaping up to be a breakthrough one for swim school.
