‘No one’s moving mountains / only water’
‘In Puzzles’ by Canadian shoegaze-inspired alt rock artist SWiiMS starts out with an icy, heavily-effected guitar wash that gives way to thumping drums and euphoric lead guitar. Vocalist Mai Diaz Langou swoons and laments, talking wistfully of landscapes and abstract futures.
From the band – ‘SWiiMS is an Indie rock outfit hailing from Toronto, Canada. After answering an ad on a local Craigslist, guitarist Colin Thompson chanced upon singer/guitarist Mai Diaz Langou. Her elegant poetry and languid vocals meshed perfectly with the band’s jangly guitar pop and fuzzy melodies. Bassist Cian O’Ruanaidh auditioned shortly after and was the perfect fit, immediately soaking the songs in tasty melodic hooks and driving energy.’
