Previously known as Picture House, Wild Swim are an Oxford band beginning to get a bit a bit of attention from Radio 6 on the back of their gorgeous new demos. Perhaps worth listening to first would be Meek and Mild (Black Keys) where the calming voice of vocalist Richard Sansom blends seamlessly into a mellow, almost pastoral intro before the song elevates towards a relaxing yet tuneful chorus. The accompanying songs Happy Heat and The Surrender are much in the same vein and seem to suggest the band have found their most effective direction, somewhere in between Wild Beasts and what Wilco would have sounded like had they grown up on a farm together. Well worth checking out also is their older track Ugly People which honestly sounds like it could be a Timbaland production away from Radio 1... in a good way.

They're also playing The Wheatsheaf in Oxford on the 27th of November which will be well worth checking out.
