Like Swimming's new video wisely avoids flying as high as the sun.
On the heels of 2014's breakthrough debut album Structures, Swedish trio Like Swimming have just released the companion EP Tiny Structures, featuring minimalist re-imaginings of the album's more popular tracks. In addition they've just completed a video for the album version of "Icarus" that serves as a good visual compliment to the song's blend of lofty poetry and propulsive indie pop.
What was the idea behind the video, you might be wondering? Says the band, "We used a lot of footage from our latest tour in the US, mixed it with a friends footage from Chernobyl and a little bit of us and that was it."
There you go.
