SWIM is a pop-rock band originating from Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, NY. Friends since high school the members of SWIM have taken time to develop their sound into a refreshing pop-rock sound that is as authentic as it is radio ready. SWIM has steadily grown their fanbase performing from local Long Island venues to national stages such as SXSW in Austin, TX. The Chase is a single ready to be the song of the summer!
The Chase was written by all members of the band, slowly coming together as they wrote each section of the song. The song speaks to uncertainty and doubt that one may feel in a relationship, while struggling to make it through. What started as a simple chord progression would be recorded and polished over the course of the year to become the version that is released today. The Chase was released on April 5th, 2019, it was self-produced, and mix and mastered at ZIN Records in Calverton, NY.
SWIM consists of Dan McCaffrey(Vocals), Nick Riviezzo(Guitar), Pat Morelli(Bass, Keys) and Brian D'Angio(Drums). The band draws influence from other bands such as Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Strokes, The Kooks, The Lumineers, Neon Trees, and Coldplay. SWIM is currently playing shows in support of their most recent release as the begin to conceptualize their first full-length album.
