Adelaide pop-punk, self-professed “two-piece puzzle”, TOWNS recently dropped their new track ‘Swimming’, alongside a larger than life video jam packed with colour and energy.
The duo have also announced they’ll be hitting the road later this year for their ‘Swimming’ Tour taking in five dates nationally from Friday 28 May in Brisbane taking in Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne and finishing with their hometown Adelaide.One half of the duo, Aston Valladares describes how the track came to life...
“I remember the words for ‘Swimming’ just flowed out like word vomit because I was literally writing about my first anxiety attack. I was aware of anxiety but never fully aware of its physical effects so I decided to write about what that felt like. I felt like personifying anxiety so I could sing to it, instead of against it.”
Aston also explains why he’s looking forward to playing it live...
“Anxiety is different for everyone, but for me this felt purely like the same overwhelming feeling I get when I look out towards the ocean and see how insanely huge and unknown it is hence the name of the song. This song has been with TOWNS for about 2 years and we did work it into our set but it somehow fell by the wayside as we wrote more, but as life becomes more and more unpredictable I feel like this is a song I know I’ll enjoy singing to anyone else who overthinks like me.”
