about

Spending the greater part of 2015 bunkered down, writing, refining and recording; Melbourne 5-piece, Swim Season, now present 'Cascades'. Their debut EP release follows the linear set of emotions of falling in and out of love in this modern age, displayed through a well-defined blend of hard-hitting grooves, driving synths, shimmering guitar hooks and soaring vocals.

Track Name: Tiny Apartment
December night, neon lights
Desire, your old friend
Begin the game, masquerade
So secret, pretence
Play along just the same

She’s vagrant,
I need more red,
Reflections are entwined again
She’s vacant,
And tired as we
One step, two-step,
I’m yours


Is that what you came here for,
Humble abode,
I’m waiting on you, on you
So take all of my reason
This could be yours
I’m waiting on you, on you


Move in close, gentle touch
Flight, your old friend
Desire like Flynn, we’ll win the night
Your hips against mine
I’ll take you home and fill your night

She’s vagrant,
I need more red,
Reflections are entwined again
She’s vacant,
and tired as we
One step, two-step the three step, restart


Is that what you came here for,
Humble abode,
I’m waiting on you, on you
So take all of my reason
This could be yours
I’m waiting on you,
I’m waiting, so

Find dark spaces so you can waste me
And take all of my reason
This could be all you make it while I lie naked and
Wait for your wild one


Is that what you came here for,
Humble abode,
I’m waiting on you,
So take all of my reason
This could be yours
I’m waiting on you, on you
Is that what you came here for,
Humble abode,
I’m waiting on you, on you
So take all of my reason
This could be yours
I’m waiting on you,
I’m waiting
Track Name: Soldiers
Your love,
A black hole
You’re an odd soul
And you are the reason that
I’m old,
You’re a temple,
As far as I know
My colour it fades

And you’re built monumental
A stronghold like an animal
Made for one soul, so mechanical
I’m here but still so cold


So call in your soldiers and their arms
They can shoot me down,
They can shoot me down
And crumble just like everybody else
You still run this town,
You still hold me now


Muscles,
Made to stumble
Well even I know
I feel like you’re made up of
Something
That’s hard to bust in
As far as I know
My colour to grey

And you’re built monumental
A stronghold like an animal
Made for one soul, so mechanical
I’m here but still so cold


So call in your soldiers and their arms
They can shoot me down,
They can shoot me down
And crumble just like everybody else
You still run this town,
You still hold me now


So call in your soldiers and their arms
They can shoot me down,
They can shoot me down
And crumble just like everybody else
You still run this town,
You still hold me now


So call in your soldiers and their arms
They can shoot me down,
They can shoot me down
And crumble just like everybody else
You still run this town,
You still hold me now
And you’re built monumental
A stronghold like an animal
Made for one soul, so mechanical
I’m here but still so cold
So call in your soldiers and there arms
They can shoot me down,
They can shoot me down
Track Name: Gold Cloak City
Safe to say I wished that my nights
Were just as bright as the day honey
It’s hard to ignore the feelings before
Pieces are torn for you


I’m living in a city that’s different now
Lights gold we change it’s the same somehow
My weight it floats like the changing tide
I’m lost my feet are what I need to find


We scream and we cry
These sheets full of lies
But I don’t know why were so proud honey
Faceless disguise
We dream black and white
I’ve all of this time for you


I’m living in a city that’s different now
Lights gold we change it’s the same somehow
My weight it floats like the changing tide
I’m lost my feet are what I need to find
I’m living in a city that’s different now
I’m cold we chase still the flame burns out
This state I show isn’t me tonight
I’ll keep my pace 'til you’re by my side


I’m living in a city that’s different now
Lights gold we change it’s the same somehow
My weight it floats like the changing tide
I’m lost my feet are what I need to find

I’m living in a city that’s different now
Lights gold we change it’s the same somehow
My weight it floats like the changing tide
I’m lost my feet are what I need to find
I’m living in a city that’s different now
Lights gold we change it’s the same somehow
My weight it floats like the changing tide
I’m lost my feet are what I need to find
Track Name: Flicker
She used to wait like she had intentions
Her book with no ending
And I’d like to think that I had a mention
The pages I remember

Truth in the tears of old
She writes though her mind in bold but her
Heart is her mace to her jar
She don’t write like she used to
Turn back the page to past
Her memory fades to dust and I,
Knew now I should have asked
Her lines are all I attest to


I wanna take you higher
Pieces of you foretold
I used to watch your fire,
But now you’re on your own
How do you fail to see?
That you were something before me
Re-ignite your fire
A flame to linger on


Truth in your withered soul
Just let your mind take over
Lay all your dirt on the floor
And let it feed like it’s made to
Leave all the ashes burnt
I know all those feelings hurt but the
Fire it blazes on
And if you want it to wake you


I wanna take you higher
Pieces of you foretold
I used to watch your fire,
But now you’re on your own
How do you fail to see?
That you were something before me
Re-ignite your fire
A flame to linger on

I wanna take you higher
I wanna take you higher
So reignite your fire
Uh Uh Oh

I wanna take you higher
Pieces of you foretold
I used to watch your fire,
But now you’re on your own
How do you fail to see?
That you were something before me
Re-ignite your fire
A flame to linger on
