Petrie’s new track To Swim is out this week.
Stream To Swim
The new single is an electronically twisted, tumultuous alt-pop masterpiece. Co-produced and written with his best mate Better Laurence, To Swim opens with a ghostly, reverb-laced synth line – Petrie sings of “having his whole life ahead of him” – before leaping into a jittery, bass-driven chorus. As the song builds, Petrie showcases his impressive vocal talents, delivering complicated, but undeniably assured lyrical passes – all with a backdrop of swirling electronics, glitchy percussion work, and crushing guitar runs.
Speaking on the song, Petrie explained – ‘To Swim is both a series of observations on hedonism and a cautionary tale with an unnerving description of comfort obsessed youth.’
