It’s been a huge year for both Swim Team and Lazertits, between them they’ve seen sell-out shows at The Grace Darling and support slots for well-loved garage legends including The Courtneys and Sonny and The Sunsets.
With big releases from both bands planned for late 2017 and 2018, they decided to get together with veteran producer Anna Laverty to record a musical tribute to their friendship.
Lazertits’ contribution to the split comes in the form of ‘Lil Sister’, three minutes of sweet relief from a society filled with patriarchal, heteronormative bullshit. While Swim Team’s contribution, ‘Positively Hopeless’ is a track about the challenges of every day anxieties and insecurities.
Swim Team’s Sammy Wass described Lazertits’ new single as “such a banger.” While Lazertits’ Amy Pettifah noted, “Swim Team have left us lowly earth dwellers behind pondering life's complexities, but we're not sad about it.”
The new split is the sonic equivalent of hugging your mates at a gig and telling them everything is going to be ok.
