Stephen Holliger’s Chicago-based Swim Ignorant Fire is a one man arsenal of pathos, artistry and vision. With roots in metal and a deep interest in foley and sound design, the music approaches a wonderful hybrid of tasteful dissonance, measured restraint, and cinematic vision.

” very melancholic, maybe sad in places, yet imbued with a subcutaneous hope.” - SOINOISE

“Amongst the airy soundscapes brews mechanistic noises, fluttering synth, and an orchestral life force that seems very fitting for the current stream of music being released…It is moving, orchestral, and eerily beautiful. There is a cohesiveness that moves the listener…” - Sweet Stuff Chicago

“Strange noises littered amongst the sounds of angels” - Scotch Tapes

“reflects tone masters such as Tarentel, Cerberus Shoal, Thurston Moore, the spiritual guidance from the classical arts in the Middle East, the elongated guitar climaxes of Explosions in the Sky along with the unique approaches to the guitar from musicians like John Frusciante and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. Experimental IDM, acoustic groundings and gardens of electronic psychedelia all submerge themselves together as one spirit.” - Sound Colour Vibration
