Swim Mountain

c. - | ORIGIN: LONDON, ENGLAND

Swim Mountain are a four-piece from London whose eponymous six-track debut EP, recorded for the label Hey Moon in London and Los Angeles, draws on “60s studio ethics and modern production techniques … the harmony-heavy songwriters of the 60s and 70s (Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, Rundgren, Nilsson and the Wilson brothers) and the bossa nova chord progressions of Brazilians Tom Jobim and João Gilberto”. For once the press release hasn’t flung in a few favourites to catch one’s attention: a track such as Dream It Real has the breathless baroque beauty of the Zombies, Ticket goes by in a psych blur while Nothing Is Quite As It Seems is like Ariel Pink mediating between Brian Wilson and Syd Barrett. Six tracks just doesn’t seem enough – can’t wait till they do an album. (theguardian)
