Can’t Swim Have Dropped An Emotionally Raw Song

This is 'In Between'.



Can't Swim
have surprised us all with a new song!

It's called 'In Between' and it's a real emotional epic. 

Vocalist Chris LoPorto had this to say about the track:

“Often times, I get sidetracked and focus too much on tricky word play and mysterious metaphors to finish up the lyrics of a song. Perhaps it’s a way to feel less vulnerable, knowing (hoping) the meaning of what I’m trying to say might go over (or under) a few people’s heads.

With “In Between” I did my best to do the opposite, I tried to have the lyrics sound like I am simply having a conversation with an old friend. Musically too, I think it has a very meat and potatoes type of approach. In the studio, we had the conversation of it being simple and straightforward and what we could do to combat that, but than after listening to it for weeks, we decided that's exactly what we liked about it.

In short, don’t mess something up with trying to be “creative” the best ideas come from somewhere else, just gotta grab em when they do.” 


Have a listen below:



It follows on from the band's last stand alone single 'God Awful' which Chris said lyrically "touches on a topic I've never covered in any of our other songs so I'm looking forward to singing it every night now that it's out."



The band are set to return to the UK for Slam Dunk alongside the likes of State Champs, PVRIS, Good Charlotte and MANY more.
