Swimsuit Issue is a seven-person American rock band fronted by model Miles Garber and David Gagliardi, who also plays guitar for punk band Trash Talk. The two founded the group after meeting at a New Jersey music conservatory in the summer of 2016. They initially bonded over an affinity for 90’s British rock and later realized they both also were exactly six feet tall.
Based between New York and Los Angeles, the band is composed of several musicians playing instruments with one another. The band’s first single, “Look Now,” is an homage to guitarist Gagliardi’s late optometrist father who was also a musician.
When asked to describe Swimsuit Issue’s sound, Garber says, “It’s somewhere between hot running water and cold running water.”
The band has played at a number of interesting venues since its first live performance in early 2017, including the Resident Los Angeles, Manhattan’s Space Market, and Boone, Iowa.
Following their first headlining dates of 2018, Swimsuit Issue debut their official video for their single “Look Now.” Watch the band’s self-directed clip here, and stay tuned for the band’s debut EP slated for release later this year.
