swim. delivers a video for those in desperate times.
No matter how bad things get, you always gotta have hope and artist swim.’s new song and video “‘Year of The Update” gives those who have fallen on tough times just that, hope.
“I wrote “Year of the Update” after my girlfriend got fired from her job when we first moved out to CA. It was hard for both of us financially at the time. So I like to think of the song as a love song but a love song that says “you can make it through this thing” rather than whatever love songs usually say. Feeling like ‘things can’t get any worse than this’ is a feeling we’ve probably all have felt. And maybe it doesn’t. Because sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it stays bad for a very long time. And sometimes, it never gets better. On those days though, we have a song.”
