Swimmer (formerly Elephant) is a high-energy progressive rock quintet based out of Burlington, VT. Their music transcends the band’s roots in rock, funk, jazz and electronica to create a unique and powerful sound. Conceived in 2014 at New Hampshire’s Plymouth State University, Swimmer has cultivated an intimate fan-base through captivating compositions and distinct live performances. Their shows feature experimental improvisation, spontaneity and plenty of dancing!
Swimmer has shared the stage with renown touring acts such as Turkuaz, Consider the Source, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Main Squeeze, Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, lespecial, & more.
To quote a fan, “Their trancey soundscapes are beautifully contrasted by their knack for progressive twists and turns, as well as undeniably deep grooves.”
Little bit of funk, a smidge of jazz, a dollop of rock, jam sensibilities, and just enough groove to get your booty moving.
With a mix of influences and inspiration, The Mangroves sound is constantly evolving, molded by experimentation and improvisation, and is sure to have you dancing before you know it.
