Beside by No Swoon










Tasha Abbott and Zack Nestel-Patt, as No Swoon, the Los Angeles dreampop band, recorded their upcoming second album Take Your Time themselves in western Massachusetts, in the midst of the pandemic's times of isolation. The record was mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Amen Dunes, Hand Habits), features drummer Jon Smith, guitarist Peter Wagner (Furrows, Olden Yolk), Jake Aaron on additional production (Snail Mail, Grizzly Bear), and Charlie Van Kirk, and it will be released on April 8th, 2022.

The duo's latest single is brimming with jangly dreampop vibrations. Abbott explains: “I have some really weird dreams. They are often these wide ranging sci-fi stories. This song is part 2 of the same dream that inspired a song on our first record “Don’t wake up, wake up”. That dream had ended with meandering into a cave that turned out to be the home to a cult where everyone looked the same and seemed very “happy.” Though, obviously they were not very happy because it was a cult. I eventually got out.”

Take Your Time is projected to be an album about growing up and being yourself, and exploring tough emotions.
