Track Of The Day :: Viola Beach - Swings & Roundabouts
Words: Ellie Ward
If today's burst of hot weather doesn't leave you wanting to do anything more taxing than chill out in a (beer) garden somewhere, then the debut single from Viola Beach should induce you to throw a few shapes.
'Swings & Waterslides' is a fizzy, infectious Britpop romp from the Warrington four-piece, who head to Reading & Leeds Festival next weekend on the BBC Introducing Stage. Its vibrant style and jangly guitars are pinned together by 19-year-old Kris Leonard's vocal, along with a bit of swagger and a lot of feelgood vibes that are just the right combination for some lively action.
'Swings & Waterslides' is released on August 28.
