Frequently Asked Questions 

What does Swim Into The Sound Mean?
Swim Into The Sound is a minor twist on a lyric from a Valient Thorr song called "Intermission: Thesis of Infinite Measure." I wrote in-depth about my experience with that song and what it means to me in this post, but I also think it's just an evocative phrase that depicts an immersive way to interact with music.

Can I send you my music?
You sure can! You can email me streams, downloads, links, or videos at There are also a variety of ways to connect with the blog listed on our contact page. I can't promise a review, coverage, or even a response, but I still listen to everything that gets sent my way, so at the very least I'll give you a handful of streams. If you'd like a guaranteed review, Swim Into The Sound has a Fiverr page where I can review your band's album in anywhere from 100 to 1,000 words.

What kind of music do you like?
I try to stay open-minded. I was born in the 90’s, so I was brought up listening to pop-punk, got into classic rock, then alternative, then metal, then indie, then hip-hop. That’s probably the shortest version of my music history, and obviously a lot happened in between. If you would like to see what I’m listening to right now, you can connect on or Spotify. Alternatively, if you’d like to see a list of my all-time favorite records, you can check out this Google Doc to peruse a genre-by-genre breakdown.

Do you have any swag?
We do! At this point it’s only stickers, but we’ve got something more significant in the works too. Our Instagram account is devoted almost entirely to photos of our stickers that people have put up, so if you’d like some shipped to you feel free to reach out and we can arrange something.
