swimming in speakers is a duo that has been crafting music that deftly fuses thoughtful indie ambiance, synth pop and toe-tapping freak folktronica since 2009. Originally joining forces to compose experimental music for a theater project at St. Lawrence University, the two musicians realized their introduction was more than a happy accident and quickly created a well-received EP. With Christopher Clarke providing the music beneath the honey-dipped vocals of Meadow Elizabeth (once describe as “instant heroin”), the band achieved buzz when two songs from their eponymous EP appeared on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” a year after its release.

Over the next 3 years, the two would meet sporadically for intense bursts of writing and recording, punctuated with live performances in New York City. Recording almost exclusively in Clarke’s home studio (and over the years there have been five), occasionally venturing to other locations and apartments throughout the Northeast to capture just the right sound.

“guessing the others” arrived in 2013 with songs as varied as the pop synth hit “in knowing” and the operatic string revelry “svoboda” to the ambient pop reflections of “so alive”. The consistency of the sound and vision across songs of such variety show a maturity that resists any modern comparisons.
