Part of First Weekend Palm Desert, Galen First Fridays April performance offers LA-based psych-pop duo SWIMM. Originally hailing from the stretch of Floridian beach known as the ‘Space Coast’, SWIMM has created a sound that blends ethereal soundscapes and sun-soaked, beachy vibes; a perfect representation of the unique place in which they grew up.

Chris Hess and Adam Winn, the duo behind SWIMM’s sound, met through surfing and mutual friends around their community in Satellite Beach. Last year, Winn and Hess took an important step in bringing their sound to a wider audience when they followed some of their favorite friends and musicians to Los Angeles. SWIMM’s Beverly Hells EP paints a vivid picture of their adopted home city’s neverending search for validation and reason. Be on the lookout for the new EP later this summer.

Galen First Fridays are generously underwritten by Helene V. Galen and sponsored by Babe’s Bar-B-Que & Brewhouse, The Venue Sushi Bar & Sake Lounge and JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa.
