Shanghai Blues Weather Storm Brian In Video For New Single 'SWIM'



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) East London quartet Shanghai Blues are pleased to reveal the video for their new single 'SWIM' which is out now via all good digital retailers.
Picking up support from the likes of Clash Music, Spotify, Apple Music, BBC introducing and Amazing Radio, the release is the latest in a string of independent singles which has seen the band steadily gaining support over the past year.

The video for Swim was shot at 7am by Nick Suchak (Anabasis Media) on a secluded beach in Kent in the midst of Storm Brian. Their timing was perfect and the scene was blessed by a gorgeous sunrise which gave the perfect lighting to match the sombre but uplifting transitions within the track.

Commenting on the song, the band said: "Swim is a song with some quite dark and heavy themes, but it's also a song with light and hope that we hope physically lifts you when listening. The song is full of natural emotion and we really wanted to capture that."

'SWIM' was produced, mixed and mastered by Oz Craggs (Feed The Rhino/Neck Deep/Mallory Knox) at Hidden Track Studios in Kent with whom the band have recorded all of their releases so far. Starting life simply as a riff written by guitarist James Heed, the band worked it up in the studio with full concentration on nailing the emotion in the music, with drummer Mike Stinton leading those powerful guitars into a towering chorus.

Injecting a heaviness into their more indie-leaning material, and instantly more impactful and considered than their previous releases, the new single shows a mellower and more mature side to this young outfit, displaying some restrained and intelligent song writing which only goes to underscore their growing appeal.

Following Spring 2017 tour dates alongside Glass Caves, Theme Park and Palace, the band have been racking up Spotify plays with appearances on several high-profile lists including The Indie List, Hot New Bands and Fresh Finds, plus support at Apple Music (Best Of The Week), Abbie McCarthy at BBC Introducing and various international radio stations. Music Week, It's All Indie, Punktastic and a swathe of other blogs have also recently lent their voices to the band's lengthy list of early champions.

Hot on the coattails of their early 2017 single releases 'Those Three Words', 'Tense' and 'Night Tears', which saw the band selling out their debut headline show in London at The Social (Heavenly Records) earlier this year, SWIM is another confident step forward for this quartet crafting their songs with a hugely diverse array of influence from artists including J Hus, Kanye West, Dinosaur Pile Up, The Strokes and Mooseblood.
SWIM is out now.
