The route taken by Swimming Lessons is fairly atypical for an electronic-pop musician. Leeds native Ben Lewis, under his SL alias, cut his teeth on the live circuit being invited to support artists like Grimes, Of Montreal and Tune-Yards, and perform at festivals such as Live at Leeds and Liverpool Sound City.

Pushing the boundaries of a 'bedroom musician', 'Double' is a world envisioned in dreamy instrumentation and lush reverb. Giving a nod to chillwave artists such as Washed Out and more experiential bands such Animal Collective, Swimming Lessons is driven by Lewis' powerful falsetto voice and infectious melodies. Perhaps 2013 will be the year that Swimming Lessons removes his armbands.
