Two Door Cinema Club on tour!
On home turf again,
second night running B-town boys Swim Deep, take the stage at the O2 Academy Birmingham. After bagging themselves the opening slot to support Two Door Cinema Club on the up and coming tour, ‘Beacon’
Support the supports that’s what I always say, plus its a good way to find new music. Luckily for local lads Swim deep taking the stage first they already have over half the capacity of the academy filled. Lots of potential new fans then boys? Definitely whats not to love.
Swim deep are a band who thrives of the energy that crowd is gives them. After seeing this first hand when they toured last year with Spector and again with best friends Peace at The Rainbow Warehouse. Just of the crowd alone, the energy level were crazy. Front man Austin Williams persona transforms, feeding from the crowd the energy was phenomenal, you could really see just how much they love and want this life. But could they get the same energy when from Two Door fans?
As the house lights came down, they were soon away. They grow as a band each time I see them, even though they act mischievous and have foolish tendencies, they know they have one chance so when it comes to writing and making music they don’t mess around.
Starting of quiet static the crowd don’t seem to be giving the energy which Austin, Cav and Higgy need perform to the max. A slow start from the crowd, but as soon a the melodic trippy beats from track Honey pass through the room, and the crowd loosen up. I mean how could you not throw some jaunty shapes to those beats! Shortly followed by recent single The Sea. clearly demonstrating the bands constant progression and want for success. Just as the crowd seem to be showing the desired energy which Swim Deep long for to bounce of the walls, the last track in the set King City is played. Seems only fitting as that’s the track which got them noticed, the crowd echoed the lyrics back at the band. This is where the o2 academy only got to catch a glimpse of the energy which B-town boys have locked within themselves . Never the less Swim deep had a solid set and performance even if it took the crowd a while to get into the vibe
Loved what you heard? The boys are getting ready to embark on a UK tour.
