Midday Swim

Story

Our follow-up EP “Climbing Out of Caves” is the culmination of a year-long process, recorded in multiple studios around the province. The opening track was produced by Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene) at his studio in farm-land Ontario. Growing up, we were all huge fans of BSS and so working with Dave – staying up until the small hours of the morning immersed in his creative process – brought out a kind of youthful excitement that really makes its presence felt on this recording.

The foundation for the remaining songs was recorded with Calvin Hartwick (July Talk) at Dream House Studio in Toronto. After taking a step back to to listen to the songs it was clear to us that the heart of the record was ‘Hold On Tight.’ While writing the song we made an effort to capture the spirit of childhood – a time when one’s imagination runs wild. Through a child’s eyes the world looks like magic and the song suggests that even now we should try to recapture that sense of youthful wonderment. There is a spirit of perseverance both in the instrumentation and the lyrics that we also wanted to reflect in the music video. The day before shooting there was a massive ice storm; instead of cancelling, we just loaded up some extra safety equipment and braved the elements anyway.

We’ve pushed ourselves creatively with this new EP, particularly with tracks like ‘Oh My My’.

Closing out the album is the celebratory anthem “We Got Here.”
