THERE - Swimming Backwards

“It’s dreamy but heavy; there is no whimsy here, just haunting portraits of longing and tenderness.” — NYLON

Los Angeles transplants Sivan Levy and Yael Enosh met (while Sivan was an Israeli academy award actress and director and Yael was an established classical pianist) working on a soundtrack for a 2018 Tel Aviv Museum exhibition and quickly forged an intense collaborative practice grounded in strikingly similar artistic visions and instincts. Enosh’s profound classical scholarly met Levy’s sultry, dark nostalgia pop vocals in a prolific creative partnership.
Uprooting themselves to begin anew in LA, the electro-pop duo has cultivated a distinct sound fusing synth dreamscapes and energized eurorack, taking on the underground scene and art show circuit.

Influenced by Blonde Redhead, Portishead, Nils Frahm, Daughter, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Thom Yorke.
