Edinburgh’s swim school release heavyweight angst-anthem “Outside”

Following their previous release “Let Me Inside Your Head”, “Outside” is a visceral offering with dreamy vocals, plenty of distortion and a summery, hazy edge. The bridge leans more towards the poppier side of swim school, before bursting into a chorus where the guitars keep them grounded in their indie roots.

Lyrically, the track is “based on the negative impact the toxic people have on your mental health and the moment you realise how toxic they are,” explains vocalist and guitarist Alice Johnson.

“It’s not until you step back from the situation, that you realise their use of manipulation such as gas lighting and dishonestly was actually destroying your mental health,” she says. “It made you question everything you did and slowly ate away at your confidence leading to you being unhappy.”
