Toronto duo Dear Pressure continue their recent spell of rolling out dream-laiden indie music today in the reveal of their debut EP, ” Swimdrown”. Boasting fans in the likes of Clash Magazine and Earmilk, Dear Pressure look set to cement themself an as a new name to watch with this immersive body of work. Speaking on the release, the band state:

“‘swimdrown’ owes its inspiration to the juxtaposition of news events with events in one’s personal life – the synchronicity between one’s natural and social environment and one’s personal relationships. It explores the moments in life when everything feels like its closing in – when the news cycle seems to exactly parallel the events you’re currently dealing with in life. We really felt that way during Hurricane Harvey in 2017. That was when the seeds of the project were planted for us. From there, it was really about figuring out how to ask the right questions and navigate that space. In many ways, it asks many more questions than it gives answers.”

“Sonically, it’s also open ended and it serves as a sample of all the musical styles we hope to explore in the future. One thing that became clear to us is that staying where you are isn’t an option. Being idle is the same thing as moving backwards on both a micro and macro scale. We want to keep moving forward both musically and otherwise.”
