The Sink or Swim, Ohio's sensational desert rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Crescent Ballroom!
The Sink or Swim was formed in Columbus (Ohio) and consists of Nate Zeune (guitar and vocals), Lou Resnick (drums), Niel Erlich (bass and vocals), and Derek Rossman (guitar and vocals). Lou and Nate are childhood friends who decided early on they're going to be in a rock band. Lou said in an interview, "Back in 4th grade when we just got our instruments, we were really influenced by bands like Rush, Pink Floyd, Guns N Roses, Black Sabbath, and most of the bands our dads introduced us to. We didn’t really know what we were doing, but we knew we wanted to make rock music." Their musical style can be broadly classified as desert rock a.k.a stoner rock (a genre which combines elements of heavy metal, psychedelic rock, blues rock, alternative metal, space rock, and doom metal). However, Lou doesn't like to define their sound. He says, "That’s for the listener to decide. I think if you truly can narrow down your sound to a specific genre, you’re not doing anything that original." They've had a stellar career with 3 extended plays, 1 singles, and their latest album (Oasis Unknown) comes out on 20th January 2018.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to desert rock music!
