This is a story of parallel lives and double musical backgrounds. At the beginning of the summer, when half of the blogosphere was still trying to find out who was behind the “hyped” proposal of Cults, the mysterious duo communicated through Twitter the details of a collaboration with a band named GUARDS. Now we know that the members of both bands are the same people. 3 Syllables Records will soon release Guards’ first EP on vinyl format. To celebrate, the band has decided to give away “ Swimming After Dark”, one of the songs on the aforementioned EP, for free .
