Biography

Los Angeles triple-synth band Halloween Swim Team has its feet on the ground and its beats in outer space.

The band spent its last few years living at the notorious Vermont House in Los Angeles, an underground venue where HST wrote and released The End Of The Sky, and established a command post for the D.I.Y. community, inspiring a rise in underground non-venues. It also served as a command station for the band’s own record label, How To Be A Microwave.

When time came to move on, Halloween Swim Team packed up and sought solitude in the city suburbs to finish its new psychedelic synth-pop album, ANTENNAAA, some of which they will release as a 3-part EP series of new songs, rarities, and live recordings. The band has since emerged with a vengeance, racking up miles in its graffiti-covered van playing endless shows. Quite a beauty, the giant van’s front grill is missing because the previous owner hit a deer and the headlights are attached by bungee cords. There’s a pink elephant on the side. The band can be seen at rock and roll clubs, living rooms, restaurants, barns, rooftops, and even lugging its instruments up desert rocky mountains to play in middle of nowhere.

The band’s cover of “Look Back In Anger” appears on the Manimal Vinyl compilation We Were So Turned On: A Tribute To David Bowie, alongside Duran Duran, Megapuss, Ed Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and more.
