Swimming Tapes Biography

The Northern Irish cohort of Robbie Reid, Jason Hawthorne, Louis Price, and Paddy Conn, had played together in previously in acts such as Kowalski, but when they all found themselves bandless in London for various reasons, it seemed only right and proper that they would play together. Things came together quickly for the quintet who were creatively reinvigorated by their new venture, releasing the 'Souvenirs' EP, produced by another Northern Irishman and former bandmate Paddy Baird (Two Door Cinema Club, Warm Digits). A subsequent EP ('Soft Sea Blue') and 13 million plays on Spotify later, Swimming Tapes are set to release their debut album 'Morningside' via London indie label Hand In Hive...

The Northern Irish cohort of Robbie Reid, Jason Hawthorne, Louis Price, and Paddy Conn, had played together in previously in acts such as Kowalski, but when they all found themselves bandless in London for various reasons, it seemed only right and proper that they would play together.

Things came together quickly for the quintet who were creatively reinvigorated by their new venture, releasing the 'Souvenirs' EP, produced by another Northern Irishman and former bandmate Paddy Baird (Two Door Cinema Club, Warm Digits).

A subsequent EP ('Soft Sea Blue') and 13 million plays on Spotify later, Swimming Tapes are set to release their debut album 'Morningside' via London indie label Hand In Hive. ‘Morningside’ was mixed by Tom Schick (Wilco, Nora Jones, Glen Hansard) at Wilco’s Chicago studio ‘The Loft’.

Their name seems to conjure up nostalgic imagery, seemingly perfect for the wistful jangle guitar music that they play.
