TAS in Session: The Swimmers

by

 

 

The Swimmers are a four-piece band from Philly, led by the husband and wife dup of Steve and Krista Yutzy-Burkey. Now that I type this, I think Yutzy-Burkey makes for a pretty awesome band name, but that’s another post for another day.

The band stopped by The Alternate Side studios during CMJ week in New York City. It was a fun session as we talked about the husband/wife dynamic in the band, the influence of their Drexel University-based, student-run record label, and the puzzling band comparisons that have been made regarding The Swimmers lately. They played four songs, with three different band members taking lead. Check out their new record People Are Soft. Cool stuff!
