“This song is an introduction into a world of isolation during a time of pandemic, frustration, and media propaganda. It is a whirlwind for the search for inner sanctum.” – Greg Antine
“I like songs that force a listener to pay attention lyrically, and musically. Allowing words, notes, and sounds to paint the picture. Creating the space for personal transcendence and a free mind” – Chaka Malik
“This song is a culmination of feelings such as isolation, anger, frustration towards all the things in the world that fragmented into a whole. As they come together in these unprecedented times.” – George Pond
“Having worked previously with George and Greg on the debut from Disciples Of Verity, there was immediate chemistry between the 3 of us which continues on with Swim The Current. I can’t wait for the world to hear what we’ve been working on!” – Joe Gareri
