Loved Sydney indie/pop duo Toucan at the Big Day Out?

Good news – now you can relive the memories with the band’s new EP, which they’ve released especially to coincide with the festival.

Swim is the follow-up to Toucan’s debut EP Brave New World, which won the triple j Unearthed/NIDA video competition last year. The lead track from the EP is the majestic Warrior, which has had over 13,000 plays on SoundCloud.

The band met and formed at the Sydney Conservatorium of music in mid-2011, and have supported the likes of The Kooks, Mystery Jets and Jungle Giants.

You can catch Toucan at the remaining legs of the Big Day Out in Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth over the next week and a half. Swim is now available via iTunes.
