Swim The Current To Release New EP Next Year; Debuts Video For EP’s Lead Single

Independent rock band Swim The Current will open the new year with a new recording.

The band will release its new EP Bright Lights in early 2020.  The record’s official release date will be announced soon. In anticipation of the EP’s release, the band debuted the video for the record’s lead single ‘Red Desert‘ last month.

The video crosses footage of the band performing its new single with a young woman dealing with some obviously heavy emotions.  The whole thing ends with a surprising ending.

The song’s musical arrangement lends itself to comparisons to works from the likes of Deftones and Foo Fighters.  The song’s lyrical content matches its visuals.  Guitarist Greg Antine talked about the song’s lyrical content in a recent interview.

“Red Desert’ is a song about relationships and their upward spin that sails the oceans of elated emotions,” he said.  “Yet, the song also shows conversely those relationships that have gone south can be gut-wrenching; filled with emotional torture as they spiral down, and the effects surface; the cutting edge of pain.  Relationships, both upward and downward, are matters of the heart and ‘Red Desert’ tells them very well.  the highs and the lows all come out in the song.”
