The Swimmer is a London based goth pop band. With Portishead, PJ Harvey and NIN as creative muses, the tunes make for some broody listening.
A little travel led to stumbling upon some inspiration from Snowdonia in Wales which manifested its way into a tune called Tombstones. Gloomy as it may be, it’s flooded in menacing want and lures in with curiousity. Listening to a few more tracks reveals thoughtful shades of sound with haunting vocals that can be ominous, or even lulling at times with present, atmospheric tones. The looming, shadowy vibes of Here We Lie are also worth a listen (or watch, below).
