"Swimming" is a collection of songs inspired by the idea of spending long days in the outdoors, soaking in the sun. Covering musical ground that stretches from bedroom-pop to electro-fused indie; "Swimming" explores the boundaries of "Summer" music. Using this paradigm as a writing tool, I discovered the density of emotions associated with summertime. The goal was to express these different emotions as they came to me while writing this record.

I used a variety of instruments and techniques to record this collection. Synthesizers and guitars are ever present, as well as some new sequencers and beat machines. I had a lot of fun creating the layers and textures present, I hope you have fun listening as well.
