Viola Beach “Swings & Waterslides”

During the 90s there were a string of bands coming out of Britain that mixed Brit rock with dance music. The craze really began with Big Audio Dynamite’s “Rush” and then extend to one hit wonders like Space Monkey’s “Sugarcane” and other. It is a really specific sound and one that Viola Beach coops for their debut single “Swings & Waterslides.” The Warrington four-piece recently played their first gig at The Cavern Club in Liverpool and already secured impressive national airplay from Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Jo Good (XFM) and Steve Lamacq (6 Music) since being championed by Dave Monks on BBC Introducing Merseyside.
