“The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing” – Marcus Aurelius
‘Wrestling’ is the new single from Orlando Seale and The Swell. Conceived in a condemned Denmark Street rehearsal room and inspired by the collapsing state of Seale’s own personal life, ‘Wrestling’ pitches us straight into the heart of the fray.
Recorded with Rob Wilks at Squarehead Studios in Kent ‘Wrestling’ is powered along by a remorseless rhythm, discordant pianos, and a palpable sense of jeopardy and impermanence. Matching Seale’s dramatic delivery the band have mercilessly stripped away layers to reveal something both ugly and beautiful as the song builds to a draining yet ultimately cathartic climax.
