Them Swoops released their debut EP, Glimmers, via +1 Records (The Heavy, The Morning Benders, Caught A Ghost). Formed in 2012 in Melbourne, Australia, Them Swoops immediately captured the attention of tastemakers Triple J with the addictive first single “Work Around It,” which then quickly entered rotation on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation.
Glimmers was recorded by the band in Melbourne and mixed in Los Angeles by Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Bloc Party). The EP features 1st Single “Work Around It”, 2nd Single “Too Fast For Love”, Indie Shuffle ‘Song Of The Day’ “Rollerskate”, and a remix by Ben Browning of Cut Copy.
After winning Triple J’s Unearthed Fuse Festival Competition last year, Them Swoops have built their following in Australia with National Tours with the likes of San Cisco, Hungry Kids Of Hungry, Birds Of Tokyo, The Maccabees and The Rubens.
Them Swoops are excited to make their US live debut this Fall, with a string of performances to be announced at the annual CMJ Music Marathon in New York this October.
