CB March 24th 2010 (with Learn To Swim)


Learn To Swim (l-r): Mark (vocals/guitar), Matt (vocals/guitar), Molly (vocals/bass).


Tonight I was joined in the studio by locals Learn To Swim. Described as “English pop”, the band (which also features Alex on drums) take influences from rock, electronica and everything in between. Always busy on the gigging front (they played at a Phoenix@Edge gig in December), the band can next be seen at Lock 17 at Camden Dingwalls - where they have a monthly residency - this Tuesday (6th). They also play The Miller Bar, near London Bridge, on April 24th. Find out more at
