Swimming Tapes are a London-based indie five piece releasing nostalgic, dreamy guitar music, drawing comparisons with the likes of Real Estate, Belle & Sebastian and Day Wave, who the band supported after the release of their self-produced debut track Souvenirs in summer 2016.

The accompanying EP included Set the Fire, which hit the top of the HypeM and Amazing Radio charts and was named the 15th Most Essential Song of 2016 by The Line Of Best Fit (“Complete greatness clothed in a simplistic, understated charm”).

A headline show at The Lexington came alongside the release of their ‘Soft Sea Blue’ EP in September 2017. With an album and further tour dates in the pipeline, 2019 is set to be a breakthrough year for Swimming Tapes.
