New Release & Video: Swimming Tapes – Keep Her Closer

Swimming Tapes have unveiled the official video for ‘Keep Her Closer’ – one of the stand out moments from their debut album, Morningside

The video builds on the blissed-out summer vibes of the track and introduces us to an alternative world where Swimming Tapes are girls and a feel-good plot unfolds

Take a watch below…

Speaking about the video’s concept, director Zoé Kraft shared: “The making of this video was just as genuine and light-hearted as the song itself. There wasn’t meant to be a distinct narrative. It simply evokes dreamy, summer-time feelings. The quirky little moments were included to remind viewers to not take things too seriously. Although the girls are meant to subtly represent each member of the band, it’s also supposed to feel as though this song could be about any one of the girls”

Whilst speaking about the track itself, Louis Price of Swimming Tapes shared: “’Keep Her Closer’ is a song I wrote after finding out a very young love got married. Her house had an amazing garden and I remembered all the times we went out at dusk and ran through it to the fields behind her house, escaping our parents. I just wrote it as an ode to her and in the hope that she’s happy and enjoying life”

Swimming Tapes will embark on a UK headline tour in November. Kicking off in Belfast, in the band’s home country, the tour will also take in Glasgow, Leeds, Bristol, Nottingham, and Manchester. The dates follow a run of city festivals earlier this year (including Hit The North and Live At Leeds) as well as their biggest London headline show to date at Oslo last month
