SWIMM Premiere New Single “True Romance” Ahead of 2nd Annual ‘Love You Down Festival’

Just a few weeks ahead of the second incarnation of their Love You Down Festival, SWIMM has unveiled “True Romance”, the latest single from their upcoming debut full-length Sentimental Porno.

“True Romance” is a sleek psych pop anthem centered around funky, Tremolo-tinged Rhodes keyboard sent to space and back and a dance-ready groove that perfectly sets the tone for the band’s upcoming celebration of the East LA creative community.


Last year, SWIMM launched the Love You Down Festival as a way to integrate the different artistic communities that may normally exist outside of each other. Love You Down, or LYD as they often refer to it, was a way to pay homage to their peers who inspire the band and to give something back to the fans that have become family in their adopted hometown. The initial incarnation of LYD attracted over 350 attendees and included performances from SWIMM, The Gloomies, Thumpasorious, Goldensuns, LA Font & Vs Colour, as well as DJ sets from Warpaint, Gardens & Villa and Aaron Byrd.

This year, SWIMM will take their celebration of Los Angeles to the next level. 

For Round 2 of LYD, SWIMM will be partnering with Spaceland Presents for an indoor/outdoor festival to take place at The Echo + Echo Patio on February 2nd. The two stages of musical performances, for which the band has created a Spotify playlist to help fans get familiar with the lineup, will be joined by live art installations, zine tables with multiple contributors, a photo booth provided by Marcella Ambriz, tarot card readers and a laser light show providing a carnival for the senses.
