Surrender (3:57)

Cover of It's Better To Travel

From It's Better To Travel and 33 other releases

Easily their second best song after “Breakout”. The track opens with a very bright and promising intro that instantly builds suspense. The song quickly subsides into a rather mid-tempo jazzy melody.

What makes this song interesting is it almost completely relies on the use of a strong refrain that contrasts heavily with the melody. Each chorus seems to be missing a conclusion, which leaves you anticipating closure throughout the song. This is delivered as a climax after the obligatory sax bridge.

Swing Out Sister continue to develop their passion for jazz and routinely demonstrate a high level of versatility and competence across the genre, but have since moved away from perky pop hits into more of a lounge style.
