Swaai Boys: REF_HS_001 (I Dream of Ganges)

NYC band Swaai Boys may call the concrete jungle home, but their spirits are in dunes far, far away. They’ve encapsulated this restlessness in their light rock, tropical-tinged song “REF_HS_001 (I Dream of Ganges),” with an accompanying music video featuring green screens strapped to their backs, and your calling card for escaping—if for a moment—your windowless dungeon of an apartment room. The Swaai Boys website is also worthy of a spontaneous internet expedition, filled with crystal ball visualizers, tomb videos, local surf reports and, of course, promises of free downloads and field recordings.
