Edinburgh-based indie rock/alt/indie pop band Swim School have aired a lyric video for their latest single “over now“.
The track features on their recent EP ‘Duality’, released on 2nd June via LAB Records. Buy it here.
Speaking about it, vocalist Alice Johnson told Dork:
“‘Over Now’ is about someone toxic finally leaving your life and them not having a hold over you anymore. The person promised you the world but ended up treating you badly. It’s about telling them that you finally see them for who they really are, that you no longer need them and how much better you are now.”
“The repetition of the words “it’s over now” is you not believing that it’s really over, and you are trying to convince yourself by saying it over and over. The song ends with the same dynamic it started with – it starts soft and with just vocal and guitar and ends with just the vocal too. The repetition gets harsher and anger as it builds, yet it comes down to just one vocal at the end, representing that alone feeling after the toxic person has left. The song goes through a lot of different emotions- anger, relief, sadness and happiness.”
