Los Angeles based duo Swimm have released their sophomore EP titled Beverly Hells. We have shared tracks already from Chris Hess and Adam Winn, and now they have a few more that makes the 6 track EP a solid showing of their diverse talents.
Swimm could be classified as psych pop but there are few tracks on the EP that are guitar heavy and definitely rock influenced. Each track is different, yet you still know you are listening to Swimm which is a great quality for any band to possess. While “Belly” and “All The Time” were upbeat and faster paced, they were able to slow it down with the title track “Beverly Hells” which speaks for the disdain of living in such a commercialized town.

The gems on the album were not chosen as any of the singles which proves the duo is able to produce track after track that are pretty much all ‘single’ worthy. The two other stand out tracks aside from the ones previously mentioned (“Topanga” and “Suddenly”) “Topanga” has great guitar (reminds of Minus the Bear a bit) and bassline going on which has a notable and harmonious chorus throughout. “Suddenly” starts off slow with a harmonica in the beginning and then bursts into a trippy psych rock/pop gem.
“Shoulda Coulda” is also a notable track which mixes psych pop and synth heavy rock together as well. All in all, Beverly Hells is another positive release from the duo and we look forward to hearing more from these guys. You can purchase Beverly Hells on i-Tunes or bandcamp.
