Here at LOCK Magazine we want to champion the independent bands and artists that we believe are really worth your attention. Kicking off our first ever ‘Get to know’ article is Essex band Swimsuit Competition.
The four-piece are causing quite a stir in-and-around Essex at the moment thanks to their infectious brand of indie-rock. Swimsuit Competition is comprised of vocalist Amber Scott, lead guitarist Michael Illingworth, Bassist Toby Scott, and drummer Gaz Burney.
Although this ferocious quartet only have two songs currently out at the moment, they are more than enough to create a bold first impression. Their debut single ‘Honey’ is a snarling and anthemic rollercoaster that will make you want to start a moshpit in broad daylight. ‘Wasted’ is the perfect example of how we unnecessarily stress and worry during young adulthood, but this time it comes with a killer guitar hook.
With their boundless energy and lively shows, Swimsuit Competition are proving to be one of Essex’s most promising new bands.
For fans of: Dream Wife, Wolf Alice, The Mysterines.
Best track: ‘Honey’.
