Hailing from Bristol, rising band Swallow Cave have shared their newest track ‘Cold Moon’, a soaring new single that reflects on mental health.
Speaking on their latest, lead singer Polly notes, “‘Cold Moon’ is about feeling really low and going to the darkest places in your mind, which for me is often late at night, and then the next morning feeling everything with kind of heightened senses and disbelief that my mind could have gotten that low the night before, but then inevitably goes back to again.”
Recorded and produced by renowned producer Ali Chant, guitarist Florrie adds, “Working with Ali was really great because he was giving us room to try out all our ideas, even the silly ones, it was very loose in that way. It was kind of child-like, we explored with those innocent thoughts you get and injected some of that into the recording process. When we had this idea of creating some abstract noise loop at the end of ‘Cold Moon’, we wanted to use the space echo and somehow make a loop with it. Ali has this beautiful piano that he recorded through a dictaphone and then played back through the space echo, and just perfectly slid into the end bringing some intensity, it was great.”
