A press release states that the group, now a fivepiece with the addition of multi-instrumentalist James Balmont, recorded the album in both London and Brussels. The record is described as a “marked departure” from their 2013 debut ‘Where The Heaven Are We’.

Singer Austin Williams says: “We’ve made a record, we’ve worked hard and we’re dead proud of it. We’ve called it ‘Mothers’ as a nod to the true creators of the universe and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this next chapter.”

The tracklist is as below:

‘One Great Song And I Could Change The World ‘
‘To My Brother’
‘Green Conduit’
‘Heavenly Moment’
‘Is There Anybody Out There’
‘Forever Spaceman’
‘Grand Affection’
‘Fuelho Boogie’

Swim Deep recently shared new tracks ‘To My Brother’, ‘Hotel California’ and their next single ‘One Great Song And I Could Change The World’.

The band have described the band’s new music to NME as “psychedelic sex music”, comparing the record to both Kanye West and Fleetwood Mac.


Williams has also revealed the ambitions he and his bandmates had for the album. “We wanted to radicalise chart music,” he said. “So we’ve taken [Kanye West’s] ‘Yeezus’ and [Fleetwood Mac album] ‘Rumours’ and put them together with acid house.”
