G. Dale's first record (Treehouse, 2005) was a hushed, home recorded paean to women, transformation and the present tense. The demo, augmented by simple guitar figures, percussion and harmonium was praised by the label Fat Cat and supported by a number of well received gigs.

In 2006 Dale convened a band under the auspices of the name Funés to twist his compositions into radically different shapes - a kind of paranoid alt-country or post-punk for romantics, depending. The fruits of this collaboration lead to the e.p. ‘Marriage’, (a title that nods to the odd musical amalgam of their sound as much as the metaphysical surrealism of its title track) and a live album '30/01/08' in early 2009 (on Woodland Recordings).

Dale began recording and performing as Mute Swimmer in 2007. The e.p. 'Bones' appeared in 2008 and a long awaited full length record is imminent. By rapid turns melancholy, angry, ironic and perversely self reflexive, his live performances are noted for their skeletal intimacy, intensity and unpredictability.
