Younghusband’s Third Album “Swimmers” Out Now On Opposite Number Records
Euan Hinshelwood’s band, Younghusband, have surfaced with their new album, ‘Swimmers’, released 7 June 2019 via Opposite Number records. Their first new music since 2015’s critically acclaimed ‘Dissolver’, ‘Swimmers’ is awash with glowing guitar melodies, breezy pop moments and restrained yet potent songcraft. It looks to themes of open space and reflection, partly inspired by band’s move to their own studio in Greenwich, built by singer and songwriter Euan Hinshelwood in an old barn.
With members of Younghusband having also played in Cate Le Bon, Wesley Gonzalez and Meilyr Jones’ recent live bands and inspired by the artists’ off the cuff approach, recording sessions for ‘Swimmers’ were driven by instinct and impulse, as Euan would introduce the new songs to bandmates on the day of recording.
With ‘Swimmers’ the band burn off some of ‘Dromes’ & ‘Dissolver’‘s haze while keeping that gentle, pastoral brand of psych-pop.
‘Swimmers’ is available on all formats and is available here.
The band are playing Rough Trade East next Friday and Manchester’s Soup Kitchen the day after.
