Mumiy Troll’s music has been played on BBC Radio and Q Radio in the UK and their new single, Swimming With Sharks is sure to follow suit. Swimming With Sharks is a pop song in its purest form. There are the deep yet sexy vocals from Lagutenko, the catchy melody of the bass line and the gentle, swooping rhythms. On first listen, it feels a bit like a Eurovision song contest song but don’t let that put you off. Get past that and you will find that this song is a true gem. Swimming With Sharks is a song that will help lift your mood – the video helps to highlight the fun side to this easy to listen to unoffensive, pop song.
