Swimming Girls have debuted their new track, ‘Pray In Silence’

Swimming Girls have debuted their new track, ‘Pray In Silence’.

It’s the latest cut from their upcoming EP ‘Existential Fears’, due for release on 7th June, and it arrives ahead of a pair of headline shows in London and Bristol.

“’Pray In Silence’ is a song about coming to terms with someone’s death,” says Vanessa. “I wrote it on Christmas Day three years ago when my dad’s health was arguably at it’s worse. He was on medication that was shutting his body down and I thought he was going to die that week.

“At times like these you wish that you believed in a god just so you can justify the situation by saying ‘he’ll be in a better place’. I don’t believe in a god so I had to fully mourn and come to terms with the fact that I might not ever see him again. But I think everyone prays in moments of desperation, just in case.”

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
