Edinburgh newcomers swim school share their new angsty single “Outside”. With crashing guitars and distorted sonics, the track filters 90s grunge amongst its indie foundations. Finding is sat within the Wolf Alice realm of indie, it’s a rousing single that we’re adding straight to our playlists.
“Outside is based on the negative impact the toxic people have on your mental health and the moment you realise how toxic they are.” explains Alice. “It’s not until you step back from the situation, that you realise their use of manipulation such as gas lighting and dishonestly was actually destroying your mental health. It made you question everything you did and slowly ate away at your confidence leading to you being unhappy. It’s about the challenge of finding the strength to cut toxic people out of your life and putting yourself, your happiness and your mental state first. It’s also about realising that toxic people will never change and that is not your responsibility to change them.”
