‘Empty Swimming Pool’ was produced by Dave Armstrong (Back Door Slam) and mixed and mastered by Manchester-based producer Jamie McIntyre (The Covasettes and The Flitz). The group originates from the Bee Gees neighborhood, The Isle of Man. Band members include Ben Donaldson (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), Corey Vaughan (Lead Guitar), Nathan Vaughan (Drums) and Charlotte Wilby (Bass). Some members picked up musical instruments in their early teens, while the bassist picked up the guitar more than a year ago. The band has cited Circa Waves and Hockey Dad as major influences on their music. The music video pairs perfectly with the cheerful energy of the song. The guitar riffs are buoyant, and the energetic drums are electrifying to the ear.
Voodoo Bandits tell us, “We wanted to create a fun, easy-going, video that accompanied the vibe of the song. Expressing our personalities as a band; to us, the song sounds like a skateboard on a half-pipe, if that makes any sense! So we went down to our local indoor skatepark, grabbed some B-roll of ourselves and some skaters, and got jamming! To top it off we used some 90s video cam aesthetics to fit the theme.”
