SONG PICK: THERE – Swimming Backwards
“Swimming Backwards” is the debut single of L.A. via Tel Aviv duo THERE, who made quite a splash at this year’s SXSW festival. For starters, the song is hard to get out of your mind after you have heard it a few times: electronics and guitar gently flow over the beat while singer Sivan Levy repeats “I will never, never, never have enough of you”. But live, she and Yael Enosh lift the performance to a whole other level: sitting on the floor, they operate two modular synthesizers with an industrial look that contrasts with the organic vibe of the music and vulnerability of the vocals.
