Track of the week

Swears – Subliminal


Swears are back with ‘Subliminal’, their most infectious single to date. At least we’ve been led to believe it is…

‘Subliminal’ lasts for roughly two and a half minutes. A catchy “na-na-na” melody paired with zesty guitar riffs gives the track an addictive surf rock quality. Don’t be fooled though. Listen a little closer and you’ll realise these distractions are hiding a deeper message.

In their own words Swears say “‘Subliminal’ is about the way in which we absorb attitudes and opinions from an invasive, all- pervasive media, which reaches into our lives, distorting our image of ourselves and those around us.” 

If you want to hear this fantastic tune and ‘Righteous Din’ (another former track of the week) live then you’re in luck. The band have two imminent shows supporting Rascalton and Strange bones. These take place on 8th February at Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough and the next day at Newcastle’s Think Tank?.
