Things have come together quickly for indie-rockers Midday Swim. They formed last summer, at an Ontario lakefront cabin, one long in the family of singer/guitarist David Krygier-Baum. “There is something about losing yourself in summertime’s eternal warmth that often breeds inspiration,” says bassist Craig Saltz (the group name came out of this experience). They quickly fleshed out Krygier-Baum's songs, and the results can be heard on an impressive eponymous debut EP. Their sound merges melody and atmospherics, and they cite Wilco, Broken Social Scene and Beach House as inspirations. Early singles "Summer Eyes" and "We Got A Feeling" have been eliciting a positive response. The band members are no novices, having paid dues in groups like whosarmy, CRHYMES and The Holy Gasp and through creating music for film and theatre. This is well worth dipping into.
Midday Swim played at CMW and have upcoming hometown Toronto shows at The Horseshoe Tavern on June 12 and at Sneaky Dee's on June 19 (part of NXNE).
