London-based indie band Swimming Tapes have released their new EP, ‘Soft Sea Blue’. Singles from the EP have seen support on Beats 1 from the likes of Matt Wilkinson and Elton John, as well as being added as a “New Name” on the Annie Mac show. Swimming Tapes have also been supported by the likes of Brooklyn Vegan and been played on KCRW, added to BBC’s Introducing Hot List, and added to a variety of influential Spotify playlists.
Swimming Tapes arrived in 2016 with a self released demo track, “Souvenirs”, which quickly won them acclaim from the blogging world. Follow up tracks “Set The Fire” and “Cameos” saw them reach the top spot on the Hype Machine chart, earned the band their first play from BBC Radio 1, and tipped them well over 3 million track streams on Spotify. Swimming Tapes rounded off the year with the release of their debut EP, named after their first single “Souvenirs”.
Swimming Tapes are Robbie Reid (guitar + vocals), Louis Price (guitar + vocals), Jason Hawthorne (guitar), Paddy Conn (bass), and Andrew Evans (drums).
