Can’t Swim at The Canal Club

Go check out New Jersey rock band Can’t Swim this week at The Canal Club! This group’s main concern? Their connection with listeners. The music they put out is a sonic screenshot of the human experience, capturing feelings and ideas in a rich variety of sound and emotion. Although the message and vibes are consistent throughout the band’s history, their more recent music is pushing them from their comfort zones into something entirely new by adding electronic music and digital instrumentation elements into the rock-forward mix. The result? Something so incredibly immersive, evocative, encouraging, and comforting that you will leave wanting to find what sets your soul on fire and chase it until you collapse.
