Swedish duo Swim recently shared their debut single “Next To Me” – a warm soundscape dashed with Swedish melancholy. Frontwoman Erika’s heavy-hearted vocals are set against a strumming bass enriched by playful melodic synths and glitchy beats. The duo’s brand of disjointed, swaying electronic pop instantly stands out.
Erika and Carl have conspired to create music for late evenings, precious moments of solitude, drives along the seaside and the last throbbing hour on the dance floor. Swim’s dreamy sound has been given new dimensions by Swedish radio veterans Boeoes Kaelstigen, whose mix of minimal trance and melodic techno adds darker layers to the original. By bringing the original track up to DJ-friendly 109 BPM and adding club friendly percussions and hypnotic synthesizers they have taken the song to new heights.
