Recent Release: SWIM GOOD – Totally A Mess Wild 7″

April 25, 2012

Swim Good is the moniker of Jon Lawless (First Rate People) and Anna Horvath (Merival); two people we’ve had the pleasure of working with many times in the past. Their latest project has really hit a note with us and now it’s time to share it with you.

Check out the debut 7″ Totally A Mess Wild in the Bandcamp player below and be prepared for some infectious indie pop. The songs feature musicians from four different Canadian provinces and can be downloaded for free at the link above – if you know what’s good for you, you’ll get on that now.

As of right now, we’re not sure what’s next for this promising duo, but as soon as we know more, you’ll be the first to know.
