Watch a new Mezzanine Swimmers vid for stand out Album cut "Cinnamon Gurl". Post Trash has the premiere & says "Channeling both beat driven pop and the absence of accessibility at times, it's Mezzanine Swimmer's ability to combine the two into something structured and approachable that is really something to behold. "Cinnamon Gurl," the album opener (and very much not a Neil Young cover) is a stunning introduction, a sparse electronic doom-pop ballad, built on a creeping electronic warbles and a deceptively wild layered rhythm, the song is both bright and claustrophobic."

Out today! Julian's Fire Talk debut, the 'Real Distance' EP. Pick it up below or stream / dl from your fave digital hub. Recorded at Gravesend Recordings in Brooklyn, the five songs are brief—only one of them breaks the two-minute mark—and freckled with twinkling guitar lines that bring The Sundays to mind. A photographer by trade, Leiby’s ability to think visually heavily influences their music; the whole EP plays like a softly-lit dream. There’s a muted urgency in each track, as though Leiby is fit to burst with earnest romanticism. But there’s self-awareness, too. On “S,” the darkest and most driving song of the bunch, Leiby almost chants a mantra: “Don’t touch me, / I own this body. / Stay away, / I’m not your prey. / I’m stronger than you think.” And it’s in that space between light and darkness, softness and force, that Julian’s songs find their charm.
