Swim to reach the end

This West Palm Beach, Florida band released their first single, Swim in 2009. It made it into indie press giant Pitchfork's 100 Best Tracks of 2010 and gained them more widespread attention. Following in the footsteps of fellow Reading and Leeds artists Weezer, Surfer Blood mix fuzzy surf rock with strong guitar hooks. Their reverb heavy single is sure to be a singalong moment when they take to the NME/Radio 1 stage for their Reading and Leeds debut.
