The Bay Bridged: « Inaniel Swims brings lazy French surf sounds to The Bay »
Whisperin and Hollerin: « What we have is a four track EP of light and airy pop music with some deft lyrical touches and even a nod to the sixties along the way »
The Octopus Literary Salon: « Inaniel Swims come all the way from the Normandy Coast of France. The sound is a unique meeting at the intersection of Serge Gainsbourg & Stereolab. »
INANIEL SWIMS is Emmanuel Dupont.
This musician, composer, drawer, painter, go go dancer, engraver… is an ex All Cannibals and an actual Sorry Sorrow Swims member.
This EP is his first solo effort.
Three of the four tracks are full of chorus and are floating like some Mac Demarco’s or Connan Mockasin’s songs can float. And in the middle you’ve got Waining Friends, groovy in the 60’s way, with hysterical backing vocals.
Until the beginning of the wecording sessions, Inaniel hid the songs to his musicians and he left them with complete freedom of action when they arrived in the studio. They wecorded during a short time, in a familiar place, without pressure, only with the will of giving the songs the best they could give.
All this can be heard on this wecord.
