SWIM DEEP + TALL STORIES + DJ SETS
Birmingham four-piece Swim Deep play melodic, guitar-based rock that belies the influence of ’80s dream pop and ’90s shoegaze. Swim Deep signed with Chess Club in 2012 and released their debut single, “King City.” Several singles followed and helped garner press interest as well as a growing fan following. In 2013 Swim Deep released their debut full-length album, Where the Heaven Are We, which peaked at number 20 on the U.K. albums charts. In 2015 Swim Deep returned with their sophomore full-length album, Mothers. Showcasing a more psychedelic, gospel, and acid house-influenced sound.

Tall Stories is an indie-punk band from the Midlands. Consisting of Louis Griffin (lead vocals and guitar), Ollie Hill (bass guitar) and Fran Hall (drums and backing vocals), the band formed in January 2018. They have spent the last year gigging around the West Midlands, including providing support for Outline at their sold out show at Birmingham’s much loved Sunflower Lounge in December 2018 and for The Novus at their Muthers Studio gig (also sold out) in April 2019. The band have also played Hare and Hounds in Birmingham and Newhampton Arts centre in Wolverhampton, as well as frequently gracing the stage at The River Rooms in their hometown of Stourbridge.
Tall Stories have a wide range of musical influences, from 80s alternative bands to Britpop, modern punk and electronic music. Currently, the band is particularly inspired by artists such as Idles, Fontaines D.C., Bodega, Sports Team, Sonic Youth and The Smashing Pumpkins.
