Swym is the recording project of Scottish writer and recording artist, Nassif Younes who has announced the release of his debut EP “Your Distraction” to drop on the 17th November via Swym Records. The EP was mastered by Nick Watson (Deep Purple, Coldplay, Fleetwood Mac) at Fluid Mastering, London.
Your Distraction EP is a musical movement grounded in humanism – at times defiant and confrontational, yet executed with bittersweet comedy. Although it explores topics like apathy, indulgence, consumerism, social change and pseudo-relationships, Your Distraction is far from downbeat. Swym has the uncanny ability to approach these issues with an attitude that mirrors his musical style – direct yet optimistic. With guitars being run through a ’50s wireless radio and vocals going through guitar amps, the sound is ambitious but always with a naive charm.

Hailing from Aberdeen, Younes cut his teeth on the acoustic guitar at the age of 17. He moved on to the piano, learning Beethoven Sonatas and dabbled in bass and drums. Once he was introduced to looping and recording techniques, he began to make use of the electric guitar. He now makes his living as a music tutor, classical guitarist, and producer. With the help of fellow bandmates and friends, Younes is joined in studio by Kris Elliot on drums, Scott Bruce on vocals and Byron Burnett on bass-guitar.
