Let's Swim, Get Swimming - Copper Shops and Train Drivers - Interview

Brighton, England's premier two piece math rock duo Let's Swim Get Swimming have just released a new 2 song EP and it's FIRE! Track 1 "Rodney's Copper Shop" starts out with a delightfully upbeat noodly guitar riff. Strumming riffage with intermittent noodling takes over, then things go back and forth between the noodling lead and the thrashy strums. This song goes from very brisk riffs to very chill quiet parts and then back again. These musicians truly understand the point of math rock keeping us on our toes like that.

Track 2 "Train Drive/ Glen Mcklennan" starts out with a singular snare drum beat and some melodic palm muted guitar strums. This jam reminds me a lot of the style of the band Chef Goldblum. back and forth between noodly tapping and strumming riffs this jam is a lot like it's predessosor except it also includes single note tapping bouts and slightly more nostalgic vibes regarding early math rock and its raw energy.
