SWMRS at TRNSMT 2019
We caught up with SWMRS when they played Glasgow back in March at Saint Luke’s ahead of TRNSMT Festival this summer.
American grunge-pop band SWMRS, pronounced Swimmers, will take to the King Tut’s Stage Powered by Utilita Energy on the Sunday of the Festival.
This is SWMRS with an acoustic version of their single ‘Trashbag Baby’…
In 2016, SWMRS put out their first record 'Drive North' themselves on their own imprint, Uncool Records. The DIY move paid off in spades with acclaim from Rolling Stone, Noisey, Nylon and Billboard. They became the first unsigned band to perform on The Late Late Show With James Corden (also their late night debut) and their music reached as far as Paris Fashion Week on the Saint Laurent runway. After international headline tours and festival appearances the band signed with Fueled By Ramen who re- issued the record.
Following the success of their first album, the four-piece dropped their new album ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’ back in February. The album includes popular tracks such as ‘April in Houston’ and ‘Trashbag Baby'.
Get your tickets to see SWMRS play on Sunday 14th July in Glasgow Green on the King Tut’s Stage Powered by Utilita Energy. They play alongside Circa Waves, Mystery Jets, Catherine McGrath, Sea Girls, Retro Video Club, and Whenyoung.
