On February 15th, 2018 Swimming WIth Bears released their new single "French Girls" produced by Gabe Simon.

“If you're yearning for the days when bands like Bombay Bicycle Club and Grouplove dominated the indie scene, Austin-based four piece Swimming With Bears have got your back... It's fun and feel-good, and if you're French, it's probably your new anthem!”
- BAEBLEMUSIC.COM

"The allure of the French Girl is forever. Swimming With Bears knows this and turned it into a glistening alt. rock anthem. Oh la la, indeed."
- NYLON.COM

Prior to releasing their debut EP in 2016, the Austin based four-piece, Swimming With Bears, had been working tirelessly to hone in on their unique alternative soul sound. Following a run of residencies in several Texas cities, as well as appearances at some of Austin’s most renowned venues, the band was invited to open for Weezer and Panic! At The Disco in early June. With a newly released, self-titled EP, the band is set to embark on their first ever national tour throughout July and August. The EP, which features lead single “Shiver and Crawl,” was produced by Matt Novesky (Blue October).

Swimming With Bears consists of Joe Perry (vocals/bass), Alec Conte (guitar), Jon Kerr (guitar) and Ryan Hannasch (drums).

“Youth is wasted on the young” is a famous quote often attributed to George Bernard Shaw, or Oscar Wilde. It’s a bitter old saying, combining a bit of cleverly worded elder wisdom with a large dose of grizzled envy. Researchers have traced the quote all the way back to a newspaper published in 1931: specifically, writer Ted Cook’s syndicated column, “Cook-Coos.” Which is damn funny, considering that in this century, neo-Psych Rock crew THE CUCKOOS are smashing that famous quote’s premise with jubilant glee.

Philadelphia's very own indie pop-rock outfit has been hitting the scene since mid 2017 with their debut release 'What Happens in Between'. Overcoming a swift name change, formerly Greenough+Wilde, the group has been delivering their sound to all corners of the city and beyond. With deep ambient and blues influences, this group has formed their own unique sound that transcends their record and peaks on stage.
