Vote for us because: SWIM is a pop/rock band from Stony Brook that has performed across Long Island for the past few years. Formed by lifelong best friends while attending Stony Brook University, SWIM has been together since 2014. Over this time, we have taken the time to mature our sound and our performance from the first tracks on our self- titled EP, to our just released EP "Finally, Someone." Along the way we have developed our sound and our songwriting, releasing infectious pop songs marked with guitar hooks and relentless grooves that salute classic rock while maintaining a fresh modern sound. With this new EP, SWIM is looking for the next step in our musical career and hope that the Newsday Battle of the Bands could be that push.
