Andrew Belinsky and David Dahlquist first began collaborating on electronic music in 2008 in Berkeley, California. Soon after, Swingset Committee was born. Later that year, the two journeyed to Seoul, South Korea, where they wrote and recorded their debut EP "In Transit" and fine-tuned their live show. En route from Korea to Brooklyn, New York, they toured extensively across Japan, Korea, California, and Texas, playing SXSW and co-billing with Bear in Heaven, Vivian Girls, and Melt Banana along the way. Settling in Brooklyn, New York, in 2010, Swingset Committee released their EP In Transit on Catlick Records, solidified their line-up with the addition of drummer Tim Morrison, and landed a CMJ showcase with the Deli NYC. And that was just the beginning.
Just try listening to Swingset Committee without dancing. This trio's raw beats, celestial synths, and new wave vocals will have you busting out moves you didn't even know you had. Although, they've only released an EP, their undeniable energy and whack-a-do rhythms are sure to carry them far. - Nylon Guys (Oct 2010)
