SWIMM issue a call for an orgy (?) of fans in the video of "Groupie"

When we receive some information about the band SWIMM, a twisted letter written by Vegan Sprong‘s Donni Leiberman and addressed to the band totally got us! Just like their latest track and erotic video for “Groupie” which is taken from their upcoming LP.

It would be a pity to sum up Leiberman‘s whole letter, but it is very long so we can’t post the whole thing. Here is how it starts:

Dear SWIMM,

Excuse my indulgence but I’m feeling as though a preface is necessary in this letter to you. So here is the preface SWIMM. My dick hasn’t been hard since before Nü metal gave shirtless cock-rock a platform to pirate a once glorified stage of bravado and turn anything with a little meat and potatoes into a creatine shake. My proverbial pendulum hasn’t approached high noon in so long that I’ve considered leaving my job as the lead music journalist at Vegan Sprong. But just as I approached accepting that this industry is as hollowed out as its collective nasal cavity… I stumbled upon hope in the form of a misspelled oasis in thin font. What I’m getting at is this. Through the twists and turns of objectifying the subjective and hocking my own daily projections onto someone’s precious musing whilst transmogrifying my opinions into printed fact I stumbled upon something that made it matter again. It was SWIMM. And well Hallelujah is right, cause guys… I think it moved a little.

This heavily disguised press release made its job though, as our ears were brought to the indie – with a psyche twist – sound of the band. SWIMM‘s “Groupie” is a surprising track: it starts like a lot of alternative pop tracks but takes another way on the end of the song. The experimentation made with the synthesizers sounds a bit old-ish to be honest but totally fits the retro-psychedelism of the whole. Watch the erotic Wyatt Noble-directed video for “Groupie” below:

SWIMM, which is comprised of California-via-Florida artists Chris Hess and Adam Winn, also keeps a Tumblr blog where you can follow their music adventures.
