SWIM SCHOOL / Duality EP
Moulded by their Edinburgh surroundings, swim school absorb influence from a wide range of genres; from 90’s grunge to modern indie and dream-pop. The release of their 2021 critically acclaimed debut EP, ‘making sense of it all’ saw vocalist & guitarist Alice Johnson enter the same space occupied by the likes of Ellie Rowsell (Wolf Alice) and Juliette Jackson (The Big Moon) – tackling delicate subjects with a vibrant yet evocative presence.
2021 also saw the band perform at Latitude Festival, All Points East and TRNSMT Festival, as well as support slots for Declan McKenna, The Snuts and Coach Party, and a storming live sets for BBC Introducing.
2022 has so far seen swim school make another massive leap forward. Recently signed to tastemaker LAB Records, praised by key titles including NME, CLASH, The Line of Best Fit, DORK, and Under The Radar and having the sort of summer festival run that is the envy of many more established artists.
And in amongst it all, they have recorded their next EP (and first on LAB) ‘Duality’ with producer Iain Berryman (Wolf Alice, Arcade Fire, Kings Of Leon, Hozier). The first single from that EP comes on November 16th in the shape of the haunting yet gripping ‘Kill You’. The song showcases everything to love about swim school – soaring guitar sounscapes, hooks galore and a massive chorus.
With more music rolling out form January heading into the EP in May, are swim school 2023 ‘Ones to Watch?’ You bet.
