Richard Swift  |  The Atlantic Ocean

RICHARD SWIFT | THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

SECRETLY CANADIAN

The Atlantic Ocean is the fourth release from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Richard Swift who is revered for his lo-fi pop experimentation. Swift’s current effort finds him commingling doo-wop with ’60s pop influences. Expect cheery synthesizers and touches of Motown soul, making The Atlantic Ocean the most danceable in Swift’s catalog. Swift continues to defy musical categorization while showcasing his sardonic, playful style with cameos from Ryan Adams, Mark Ronson, Sean Lennon and Pat Sansone (Wilco).
