Tracklist: Victories At Sea - Swim

Birmingham trio Victories At Sea couldn't be more like the sound of 2008 at first, as a post-punk guitar figure and tricksy drumming sounding not unlike Jack Bevan of Foals gives way to big keyboard chords and rushing chords not too far from the Cure. Eventually, though, it becomes something that fits more comfortably alongside Tall Ships and co in the way it twists outsider interlocking complexity into guitar-pop shapes and then gives the result a vigorous shake to make it sound more like a wind tunnel.
