Stream: Mary Epworth shares the hypnotic “Me Swimming”

SwimmingMary Epworth's second album Elytral is due out later in the year. In the meantime, she's given us the album's hypnotic first single "Me Swimming" to keep us going.

Epworth explains what the track is about: "This is and isn’t about me swimming. It's really more about the mind over matter trick where you visualise yourself in a different place and time. In my case I'm zooming back to being 5 years old in a Ramada Inn swimming pool in Roanoke Virginia, fluorescent orange armbands in a sunlit turquoise blue pool, totally free and joyfully unselfconscious."

With its electronic effects and Bowie style influences, "Me Swimming" is something of an endearingly eccentric experience. It's still one of the most pop tracks from the upcoming album, which leans heavily towards the dark and experimental.

Elytral was produced by Thom Monahan and recorded at his Golden Void studio in Los Angeles. The album finds Epworth taking a more ferocious approach and drawing from a range of sonic soundscapes, including electronic, experimental, prog, psychedelia, free jazz and more.

Elytral was made with support from the Momentum Music Fund. Momentum is managed by the PRS for Music Foundation, supported using public funding from Arts Council England and in association with Spotify and PPL.

Elytral is out 1st September on Sunday Best.
