swim school

Swim School absorb influence from a wide range of genres; from 90’s grunge to modern indie and dream-pop. Taking inspiration from bands and artists such as Foals, The Cure, Slowdive, Ben Howard and Paolo Nutini. Frontwoman Alice Johnson mentioned in an interview that Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell was her inspiration for being in a band, with Swim School being the “Tesco value” version of that. In our humble opinion, they’re a whole lot more than that. Their newest offering, the EP Making Sense Of It All (2024), is emotionally charged indie pop perfection, that alternates between melancholia and euphoria. With a simmering cover of Pixies’ ‘Where Is My Mind’.
