According to Culture Collide,
‘Like Swimming is a fresh trio (Claes Carlström, Ida Hedene, and Petter Wesslander) from Sweden that somehow feels familiar. Think of a clear, crisp Sunday morning that feels nostalgic and uplifting. That’s the sound of Like Swimming.
Listen to the premiere of their brand new track “A Room Of Her Own” from their forthcoming album Structures, due September 9. Then let Claes guide you to fully enjoying the band’s hometown and capital of Sweden. Frankly, we think that sipping wine on one of the beautiful archipelagos of Stockholm is already a legit reason for a trip.’
