Swim School have today shared new single “Outside”, following on from “Let Me Inside Your Head”, released earlier in the year.
The latest single from the Scottish alt-rockers sees the band deliver untamed riffs, headbanging beats and a melody that oozes with a powerful control. Fans of Wolf Alice and Smashing Pumpkins will be sure to be turning this one up loud.
Speaking on the new single lead singer Alice Johnson explained:
“Outside is based on the negative impact the toxic people have on your mental health and the moment you realise how toxic they are.”
“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. It made you question everything you did and slowly ate away at your confidence leading to you being unhappy.
It’s about the challenge of finding the strength to cut toxic people out of your life and putting yourself, your happiness and your mental state first. It’s also about realising that toxic people will never change and that is not your responsibility to change them.”
