Layered with cosmic synthesizers and thunderous electronic beats, the triple-synth band Halloween Swim Team consists of Dustin M Krapes, Jon Navarro, and Scott Carrillo. Hailing from Los Angeles, Halloween Swim Team’s upcoming ANTENNAAA consists of infectious melodies and sing along type phrasing that immerses you into an electronic paradise of wonderment. Their unique sound is explosive, erupting with rhythms showing off the team’s sound design and synth talents from the get-go.
From 2007-2009, Halloween Swim Team lived at the notorious Vermont House, a house venue where they recorded their first all synth album, The End Of The Sky and formed their own record label, How To Be A Microwave, which is home to acts such as Michael Nhat, Stay Cool Forever, Tes Elations, Virginia Reed and Narwhal Party. In 2010, between tons of LA shows, tours of the west coast and southwest and producing their own music videos, the band released a limited edition, 3-part EP series and finished recording the full length ANTENNAAA.
Halloween Swim Team create their intense sound with various analog and digital synthesizers, samplers and effects pedals (Dustin Krapes, Jon Navarro) as the melodic digital force backed by hypnotic beats and frenetic bass (Scott Carrillo). The group is currently inactive as the members are pursuing other projects.
