Melbourne indie-pop band Low Key Crush sing about unreciprocated love in their new, softly percussed and harmony-rich track, ‘Swimming Laps’.
The light tune expresses the desire for love that doesn’t exist or has not yet taken off. It serves as a reminder to the listener that - even though one may want to experience requited love - it’s important to appreciate the unrequited kind too.
Low Key Crush utilise consistent acoustic melodies and chilled lyrical references to create the perfect mixture of sincerity and reclusive acceptance in the song.
‘Swimming Laps’ was initially written by singer/guitarist Tim Haines, and was brought to life with the help of his close musical pal, bassist and vocalist Ella Francis of Mac’s Peake, and his new friend, drummer Taycian Lord.
Together, their shared love of guitar-based pop music has grown into a completely unique sound. Their influences include 90’s idols The Cranberries, Lemon Heads and Max Martin, with nods to modern torchbearers Soccer Mommy, Snail Mail and Hatchie.
