Swimming is a band conceived by prolific St. John’s musicians Liam Ryan, Jacob Cherwick & Nick Hunt. Combining elements of Emo, Math Rock & Post-Hardcore, Swimming presents a sound that is both nostalgic and refreshingly original. Swimming broke into the St. John’s music scene in 2018 with the release of a 4 song EP and a much buzzed about debut show. Spending the following years performing at several venues & festivals around St. John’s, Swimming released their debut LP That's OK in October 2021 in partnership with Chillwavve Records. That's OK received praise in Exclaim!, Uproxx & New Feeling, among others, for its ability to explore themes of geopolitical abandonment & coming of age while still leaving room for catchy hooks & nuanced musical arrangement.
