Music Times recently interviewed Claes, Ida and Petter on their debut album, “Structures” and brand new music video for single “A Room Of Her Own.”
The article begins:
“Imagine music like a body of water. At times, the notes dive in and make a splash, other times they swirl around and build momentum; and then there are moments of peace, when the notes cut straight through the waves, or when the water settles, and silence takes over. Motions in music often mimic motions in water, and Swedish band Like Swimming uses that imagery as their guiding light when writing their sun-kissed songs.”
Continues… “One milestone the band has reached is bringing its music stateside, thanks to their U.S. label DigSin.
“To release a full-length album on a national-based label was a goal in itself,” Wesslander says, with Carlström adding, “I’m amazed with all the reception we’ve got [in America] for a debut. It’s been amazing to discover another continent. It’s an amazing place, a world of its own.”
What they’ve brought to audiences for their live show is a simple ensemble: three people using tiny instruments to create a big sound.
“[Our name] Like Swimming also explains our live show — from the tiniest little skinny dip to the largest sort of chaos.”‘
