Every now and then something pops into the Clash Inbox which just puts a smile on people's faces.
More often than not, it's music. Today, it's the turn of Swim Good to put a bloody great beaming grin on our collective noggin.
Part of Ryan Hemsworth's ongoing Secret Songs endeavour, the project partners up with vocalist Merival for 'Since U Asked'. Tropical flavoured synth pop with just a hint of gospel, the sheer colour of the track recalls The Avalanches.
