Birmingham’s Swim Deep have been one of the main players in B-Town’s massive year. Featured on endless ‘Sound of 13’ lists and much hyped by big hitters like Hew Stephens the transformation from hapless slackers to one of Britain’s best loved bands seems is nearing its completion. This morning Hew gave a sneak preview of their upcoming single ‘The Sea’ on his New Music Takeover show. We managed to get our hands on a rip. Give it a spin. UPDATE: The band have just uploaded the official stream which has now replaced the rip.
