Brighton based alt-pop band Safe To Swim have once again created an infectiously uplifting track in their new single ‘Why Does He Wanna Know?’. Having already released an absolute banger this year – ‘Make Things Like They Used To Be’ – it was exciting to see what the band’s latest offering had in store for us. Let’s just say, we were not disappointed.
Opening with loud synth and whirring sounds, frontman James Filippides launches into the song with his entrancing vocals projecting the lyrics, “Why does he wanna know?”. It’s at this point the track really comes into its own; fast, tight drums, faint jangly guitar melodies and subtly impactful bass lines fill most of the song as Filippides’ vocals dance on top of the music.
This track is definitely one for a summer party playlist, or when you’re in the mood to have a boogie around your room – I can only imagine the atmosphere when this gets played live. ‘Why Does He Wanna Know?’ will feature on Safe to Swim’s upcoming debut EP, ‘Boyhood,’ out 5th July.
‘Why Does He Wanna Know?’ is out now – available to Stream/Purchase here.
