* Gym and Swim (태국) *
One of the most intriguing bands out of Asia, Gym and Swim released debut album Seasick with Parinam Music (2016) and have seen their profile grow steadily since. With chart-climbing singles like Iron Man, Octopussy, Yuuwahuu, and Bunny House, this Thai quintet has already appeared at Clockenflap, Wake Up Festival, and their latest Asia tour will be bringing them here to South Korea.

Gym and Swim은 현재 태국 인디씬에서 가장 흥미로운 밴드이자 뜨거운 관심을 받고 있는 밴드 중 하나이다.
이미 각자의 밴드를 가지고 태국 인디씬에서 활발한 활동을 이어온 Gym and Swim의 멤버들은, ‘TROPICAL INSPIRED POP’이라는 그들만의 새로운 장르를 추구하며 열대 해변의 청량함을 한껏 머금은 음악과 유쾌한 이야기가 담긴 가사들로 정규 음반을 발매하기 전부터 전세계 팬들의 지지를 받았다.
2016년 정규 앨범 [Seasick]을 발매한 이후 태국 내의 페스티벌들과 일본/대만 투어 그리고 홍콩의 Clockenflap 출연까지, 태국을 넘어 아시아를 무대로 활발하게 활동하고 있다. 또한 2017년에는 혁오의 태국 투어 오프닝을 장식하기도 했다.
