Biography

(2009 – present)

Swim is a name of at least six bands:

[1] In the last twelve months they evolved from a studio project into a passionate, four-piece collective. They self-released and self-produced three singles (and the accompanying videos) and, with line-up cemented, began a series of gigs culminating in a headline show at Camden Barfly at the end of the year.

As well as catching the attention of Nike, Sky, Topshop, H&M and more, they’ve had features in the likes of Time Out, Les Inrocks and Artrocker (“New Blood 2014”) all without a major label. With the prospect of a stack of new releases and headline gigs already booked; 2014 promises to be even busier.

Releases include, singles: “Ride” (Nov 2012, Bad life) and “Creeper” (May 2013, Bad Life).

2013 releases are planned to include of their début EP, “Distractions”, lead by summer single “Let It Go”.

Sites: Discogs.

[2] A New York City, NY, USA, band (aka Joshua Kobak and Swim), led by Joshua Kobak, with releases including: “Sample the Nerve” (1999, Shade), “Bodhisattva” (2000, Orchard), “Above And Beneath” (2001, Liilaa) and “Learn How To Swim” (2009).

Named with ‘engagement in live’ in mind, the music of Swim might be characterized as a hybrid of Jeff Buckley and Bono singing, songs written/arranged by Peter Gabriel and Sting, and produced by Pink Floyd. Swim has been in existence since 1995 and has evolved into the six-member band who created the album above and beneath.

    Swim is also a band from San Antonio, Texas. Doubt if they're still together.
