Edinburgh-born, London-based producer Barry Can’t Swim returns with infectious new single “Like The Old Days” released on Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour.
Barry’s final track of the year looks to the past but also at how far he’s come as an artist in recent years. “It always felt like a track close to home” he comments, “just gives off that air of nostalgia and good times and makes me think about my family and how much my life has changed the past year. My grandad is 90 years old now, and he gave me my first piano after he saw an advert in the paper for a piano that was ‘free to a good home’. Then fast-forward to this year, I was able to have him up on stage beside me at FLY festival in our hometown Edinburgh, literally on the grounds where he used to play as a kid. That full circle is just mad, and so it only felt right to use this photo of me and him as the artwork”.
Throughout 2022 Barry Can’t Swim has performed at festivals across the UK, Europe, USA and Australia including Glastonbury, Sundown Festival, FLY Open Air, BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend, Secret Garden Party, Lost Village Festival, bringing his high energy DJ sets to the masses.
Upcoming shows include Warehouse Project, a headline Phonox show and O2 Academy Brixton supporting Ben Böhmer, before rounding off the year with a second round of US shows plus dates in Australia and New Zealand.
