The Indie pop rock band’s new single, “The Chase” is available on many digital platforms:


Long Island Band, SWIM


The recoding, according to Broadwayworld.com is “a fun and energetic piece written collectively by the band”. Additionally the website added the song “blends together various elements of mainstream pop, rock, and indie. ‘The Chase’ is quite nostalgic, speaking of personal doubt in a relationship, while also piecing together each band members’ instrumentation to create a sleek, cool fusion.”

According to the band, “The Chase” was written by all members of the band, slowly coming together as they wrote each section of the song. What started as a pretty simple chord progression would be recorded and polished over the course of a year to morph into the version that was just released (video is below).

SWIM is an indie pop-rock band originating in Stony Brook. They were voted one of the Top 10 bands on Long Island during the summer of 2017 in Newsday’s Band Battle.

SWIM has been active at venues across Long Island since 2015, following the release of their first, self-titled EP, even performing at notable local venues like 89 North (Patchogue), Revolution (Amityville), and the Rainbow Stage at Heckscher State Park.

Here’s SWIM’s video – “The Chase”:
