This demo is well worth a review, simply to give you an insight into this excellent Vancouver outfit. With a proper album in the pipeline, Swim make up an increasing number of talented bands who pass the major record labels by with the digital download age and independence offering them the best way forward. Lead by vocalist Phil Russo and featuring brother Anthony on drums, Swim offer a modern rock sound heavy with traditional influences. Melody, structure and arrangement are the key to the Swim sound on the Genesis styled rock of ‘Here to Stay’-check out the retro style keys and the Collins/Gabriel tinged vocals-or the power balladry of ‘Hangin Around’. Closer ‘Nothing to Lose’ follows a similar melodic route whilst incorporating many of the elements of that has brought Canadian hard-rock to the forefront of the stadium rock scene. No doubt about it this band have a certain wow factor and I for one cannot wait for the release of their debut album. Watch this space.
