Bath based dark dreampoppers with their third single due out early 2018, following 2017’s  ‘Tastes Like Money’ and ‘2 Kids‘ alt-pop gems. The vocals glide over walls of sonic bliss and cut through abstraction – gifting ‘Like a Prayer’ anthracene and ‘To Here Knows When’ sugar-cane within the same breath.

Dream-weavers Swimming Girls, being randomly fused together, and simply instructed to “write a song”, birthed a world of high-aiming melancholy that is as unashamedly confident as it is imaginative. Mixed by Marta Salogni, who has collaborated with such artists as Shura, M.I.A. and Sampha, the band’s first offering was “Tastes Like Money’ is a celebration of 80’s, night-drive nostalgia – kissing sheets of Lynchian romance and pandering to the ache and obsession found in the thought of yesterday.

Self-described as ‘Dark Dream-Pop’, Swimming Girls stop to smell the roses, while pressing thorns against a blushed cheek.


We’ve been pretty spoilt by massively promising debut singles this year – from the polished introduction from Pale Waves to the Warpaint and Blood Orange-channeling Londoners ALASKALASKA – but ‘Tastes Like Money’, the first offering from Swimming Girls, might just take the biscuit.


Band Members
Vanessa, Jay, Roo and Max
