On Keep Smiling, Swimming With Bears are able to craft a charismatic and catchy brand of alt-pop. Taut instrumentation ensures that distinct sections can be masterfully weaved into a cogent narrative. Down and dirty guitars act as the perfect counterpoint for smooth vocals, while the sweeping synths at the top of the song are matched through punctual drum work. There are a surprisingly large amount of things occurring at any second of Keep Smiling; fans will be able to continually find new twists and turns even after a few spins. Check out the video for SWB’s latest below and let us know what you think.
