|Цитата: (The Guardian)|
|It might have been a disappointing summer for Britain's Olympic swimmers, but Scottish five-piece Olympic Swimmers have gone from strength to strength, even if they are yet to make a splash, let alone anything resembling waves. The tags on their bandcamp include "ethereal", "dream-pop", "shoegaze" and "folk", but really this is indie – indie at its best, indie like they used to make it, before it became the stomping ground of yobs and cartoon degenerates. This is what the alternative scene was like in the days before Britpop, when it was all waif-like females with soaring voices fronting bands whose object lesson it was to recreate the ambience of an echoey church or, to employ the parlance of the day, a sonic cathedral.|
Olympic Swimmers formed in 2009, are mates with the Delgados and have played some shows with Idlewild and Admiral Fallow, yada yada, blah blah. What you really need to know is that they have an album out called No Flags Will Fly – which you can stream on their bandcamp and which features songs that veer from mundane to marvellous.
очень приятственный молодой коллектив с торжественными, печальными, но какими-то тем не менее обнадеживающими песнями. вокалистка слегка напоминает Эмму из Delgados, только поголосистее и с акцентом покрепче.
