A 9-track compilation on which the band revisit and remaster eight non-album tracks, a process that has led to their first new song since 2012, Twenty Years Too Soon, Twenty Years Too Late.
There cannot, surely, be many bands who find themselves compared favourably to both Belle and Sebastian and the KLF. Such is the curious fate of Edinburgh’s Swimmer One, whose experimental pop music has proved almost impossible to categorise but whose debut album, The Regional Variations, won rave reviews on its release in 2007.
Swimmer One make intelligent leftfield pop, but not the kind that fits neatly into any box. Think Belle and Sebastian, The KLF, the Associates, The Blue Nile and the Chemical Brothers. Keep thinking and then you’ll arrive where Swimmer One have arrived.
