Music from the US – Emmet Swimming

Emmet Swimming is a rock band from Virginia that was formed in 1990.  The band’s name is a misspelled reference to Emmett Till, who died after being shot and thrown into a river. “The idea of the name was basically that a 14-year-old boy should be swimming in the river, not dying in it,” said singer/founder Todd Watts.  The band has released four albums.  This is their song “Arlington.”
