Premiere: Going Swimming’s Latest Surf-Punk Single

Naarm/Melbourne four-piece announce new album with blistering single - take a first listen to ‘Hating / Waiting’

Following-up lead single All Dressed Up To Cry, Going Swimming have announced their new album Can’t Wake Up in emphatic fashion with rollicking new single Hating / Waiting, out September 15 but premiering on Pilerats today.

Opening with a big triumphant guitar chord, Hating / Waiting kicks straight into things with a tight, propulsive rhythm section, fuzzy guitars and anthemic lead vocals from frontman Nicholas Legget (honourable mention to the harmonic backing vocals!).

Speaking on the inspiration behind the single, Going Swimming explains "The lyrics are about making mistakes in relationships and hurting those that you care about most. Sometimes it's easy to forget and take it for granted, as it's those moments of thoughtlessness that can really ruin what we hold closest, even if you didn't intend it that way. The song comes full circle in the end, and whilst we never like to get too deep and meaningful, hopefully this tune will serve as an ongoing reminder to not take for granted the ones in our life who are most important."

With their new album Can’t Wake Up out October 13, you don’t have to wait to hear Going Swimming’s new single ahead of it’s September 15 release:
