Los Angeles based SWIMM exist beyond any defined boundaries of genre.
Defying categorization, SWIMM blend an eclectic mix of sounds into a refreshing new experience. Their latest single, titled “Uh Huh,” instantly hooks the listener as steady alt-pop rhythms carry the track from start to finish. At the same time, the song remains endlessly fascinating with its intricate layering of style and production. The raw vocals are almost Mick Jagger-esque, imbued with a sensuality and complemented with a dreamy background to amplify the arousing vibe. The record’s production provides an elevated, heady feel, while the instrumentals are rooted in a raw authenticity — the playfully disjointed guitar solo, laid over a throbbing beat, is a delightful surprise. SWIMM’s creative musicianship is a highlight; their effortless precision shines through on the entire song.
“Uh Huh” is the final single off SWIMM’s upcoming debut LP Sentimental Porno, which will be released June 8 and can be pre-ordered here. Listen to “Uh Huh” below, and catch SWIMM live in L.A. on June 21st and August 9th!
