Dana Swimmer was born in a vacuum. As you leave the band’s adopted hometown, the musical mecca that is Athens, GA, drive due north on US Highway 441. When the city falls away, keep driving. Eventually you may see signs for Cleveland, GA — The Vacuum. A sprawling stretch with little to do and no trace of a music scene. Singer Jack Blauvelt, sister Maggie Blauvelt, and drummer Parker Lusk spent two decades here in the mountains pulling songs from the thin air before joining guitarist John Riccitelli and bass player Danny Hurley in the city for the litmus test.
