What they say:
"Very lovely new wares from @NiallCJackson on @todayfm now providing an ironic but gorgeous soundtrack to the rain here!" - Ed Smith - Today FM 04/06/2017
"A laid back, lazy afternoon tune, ‘Summer’s Here’ reminds us a little of Kurt Vile mixed in with Kings of Convenience. Swimmers Jackson showcases some great guitar skills towards the end but the vocals are the highpoint of this song, layering together in a blissful and hazy way. Who doesn’t enjoy those long and bright summer days?” - BBC Across the Line. 16/06/2017
'Swimmers Jackson's 'Life's Short (Embrace It)' song title serves as a mission statement for the song itself, which barely lasts over 90 seconds, so the Bouts member doesn't muck about in providing a succinct guitar pop track that you'll want to repeat because of it's length and catchy nature - Nialler 9 - The Irish Times - 10/08/2017
"Swimmers’ sunkissed indie-pop brought me straight back to the 1990s - Aoife Barry - The Irish Times. 25/01/2013
