((Swim Party)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

My initial impression of San Diego's Swim Party was that they sort of sound like a cross between The Shins and early Modest Mouse with a little bit of Broken Social Scene thrown in-between. So you know this is going to be pretty melodic stuff.

They've got those breezy guitar melodies that sometimes get a little spacey (like The Shins), a vague sense of psych with a wickedly wonderful vocal warble courtesy of singer Eric Tremblay (like Modest Mouse), and some subtly serene string arrangements (like Broken Social Scene). I'm not sure why these four are still unsigned since they represent a cross between three bands who have sold a bajillion albums. Who knows, maybe that's just the way Swim Party rolls.
