With well-written, soulful and eclectic tracks, and influences such as Kings of Leon and Phoenix, Swimming with Bears is an optimistic outfit that’s brimming with indie ambition.

. Shifting moods between the playfulness of Two Door Cinema Club and the twangy tendencies of Mumford and Sons, Swimming with Bears harbors the promise of mainstream success on many fronts.
