Swim Camp has shared two new songs in the lead-up to his new album, Steel Country. Listen to ‘Apple’ and ‘No’ below.
“‘Apple’ is a song about catching up with an old friend and giving them all the details of your life they’ve missed out on since you were last together,” Tom Morris explained in a statement. “It’s both a way of getting them up to speed as well as checking in with yourself. The narrator in this song starts off sad that so much time has passed between the old friends but winds up learning that the distance was necessary for both of their growth, despite the sadness.”
“‘No’ is a song about crossed wires,” Morris added. “It’s when someone tells you something they shouldn’t and then regrets it later on. you don’t know what to do because it’s not your fault they confided in you. ultimately it makes you feel stupid and empty and no one benefits from it.”
Steel Country is set to drop on February 24 via Julia’s War Recordings. It includes the previously shared tracks ‘Dougie (For Sharyl)’ and ‘Pillow’.
