Swedish indie-pop trio Like Swimming is excited to announce that they will release their debut full-length studio album Structures this July via DigSin in the US. The news of the release comes on the heels of the band's first ever SXSW, where they played several high profile shows includingFilter's famous Cedar Street performances, as well as the release of their debut EP Let Go on March 4th. The ten-song set was recorded almost entirely in the contemporary RMV Studio by Linn Fijal (The Hives, Icona Pop), outside of the impossibly catchy "Go Buffalo." For this dance pop gem, they went to the legendary Polar Studio which was founded by ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and has served as home to everyone from Led Zeppelin to Celine Dion to the Beastie Boys. Additional recording was done by the band themselves, who also are credited with production on the album. Structureswas mixed by Brian Malouf (Queen, Madonna) and mastered by Dave Cooley (M83, Local Natives, La Sera).
Though Like Swimming was born just two years ago, the trio - Claes Carlström (vox, guitar), Ida Hedene (vox, piano), Petter Wesslander (drums) - have been crafting music together for over seven years. Born from the ashes of their previous band You Say France and I Whistle, the three have made waves in the US after releasing only three tracks to date - the first, "God Knows," served as the perfect introduction to the band's sound, with BlackBook noting "...winsome, pretty guitar work... propulsive syncopation... tight harmonies." Next came the impossibly catchy "Go Buffalo" which had MTV Buzzworthy calling the band "Our Latest Obsession." The track also earned the band their first American radio airplay, with early spins from KROQ, Live 105, KDHX, and Cities 97 among a number of others.
Last October, the band made their live debut in the US at Filter's Culture Collide alongside The Men,Rhye, and The Ravonettes. From LA, Like Swimming made their way back East, pit-stopping for their first Daytrotter Session, where they performed current single "Let Go" for the first time - a song that eventually landed at #26 of Daytrotter's Best Songs of 2013. The band continued on to make their debut at New York City's CMJ Festival before heading back to Sweden to write and record Structures.
Like Swimming returned to the US this March to make their SXSW debut before gearing up for the release of Structures. They'll bring Structures to US fans when they return this summer for tour, details forthcoming. For the most up to date information, check out http://likeswimmingmusic.com/.
