Swimming With Sharks – Careless Love (US 12″)

You wait for one shark and another goes swimming past…..

Keeping with some more mainstream, massive in their native Germany the Humpe sisters renamed themselves Swimming With Sharks and tried to dent the UK and American markets (it didn’t reaching Number 60 in the UK chart!). This was the first single off the self named album, a synth power ballad and more than a hint of Pet Shop Boys about the production. Jolley/Harris/Jolley remix the main 12″ adding synth horns and it a Madonna style groove.

B-side “Come Closer” is more bouncy synth pop and has an Eastern feel to it ( a bit of synth sitar) and those recognizable harmonies.
