Original Swimming Party: The Blue


Original Swimming Party, the experimental electro three-piece from Cape Town, released and launched their spellbinding debut, The Blue EP, at The Fugard Theatre.

Recorded at The Red Bull Studios Cape Town, this fresh release floats between echoes of Thom Yorke circa The Eraser and Damon Albarn’s new Every Day Robots sound. In between stand-out tracks like the languidly emotive “Weeping Song II,” Jeremy De Tolly and bandmates Thomas Glendinning and Greg Abrahams crafted alternative soundscapes made of white noise and drone bleeps on the purely instrumental “ES330MxRps-6 (But You).” Original Swimming Party’s use of guitars, boldly spacious production and vulnerable male vocals were nothing short of refreshing.
