The Swimmer are a two piece self-styled goth-pop band heralding from North London. Hannah Melbourn (vocals) and Ben Tarrant-Brown (keyboards, guitars) form a musical duo who have been writing music together for several years. The band take their inspiration from artists such as Portishead, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails and The Knife.

Note from singer / song writer Stuart Staples:
"Memory of a Free Festival" is a 1970 single by David Bowie. The song had originally been recorded in September 1969 as a seven-minute opus for Bowie's second self-titled album (reissued as Space Oddity in 1972). It was reworked in March-April 1970 at the behest of Mercury Records, the label believing that the track had a better chance of success as a single than "The Prettiest Star", released earlier in the year. Bowie and Tony Visconti roughly split the track in half, re-recording it so both halves could function as individual songs.
