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!”
"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).
