    Viola Beach - "Swings & Waterslides"

    Viola Beach are four mates from the North of England who started writing songs and making music together, but if "Swings & Waterslides" is any indication, they're about to be a lot more than that. It's a jaunty indie rock song with a huge hook, built for primetime radio play and to be screamed by massive festival crowds.

    "When I was younger I was into Arctic Monkeys and The Kooks. I still kinda try to do my own thing rather than become the next Arctic Monkeys or the next Kooks," Kris from the band told us. While we're backing Viola Beach to carve out their own lane, a few more songs like this one, and they'll be well on their way to A-list rock band level popularity.
