What they say:
Swimmers’ sunkissed indie-pop brought me straight back to the 1990s, with Laguna a particularly great track(...) - Aoife Barry - The Irish Times. January 25th-2013
Sitting somewhere between surf-pop and indie-rock, the ep’s a laid-back, addictive listen. Propelled by a clever, and very tight, rhythm section, the whole affair is filled with jagged, reverb-drenched guitar lines and frequently arresting vocal melodies-http://headphonejacks.net/2013/01/15/review-swimmers-swimmers-year-ep/ 2014
Swimmer's show a similar passion for pop-driven alternative rock as Bouts but with a more biting and moody edge. dynamic undulating guitars and catchy vocals - GroundFloorGo - June 6th -2013
