A No Swimming Short

Stuff We Love
By Lynda Wheatley | July 16, 2022

Since the members of Chicago soul band The O’My’s came together a decade ago, they’ve retreated to a family barn in Leelanau County to write and record their music. In October, they brought along an audio and visual team to film a live rendition of their latest EP, No Swimming. The short film, a beautiful capture of moment as well as music, just went live on YouTube last week. Their stellar sound—always chill, often sexy, and as ideal a soundtrack for intimate dinner parties as hanging alone in the hammock—feels even more personal when bookended by snippets of the musicians hiking, cooking, and talking about what the space and place means to them and their creative process. “We’re city kids,” they say as the film opens, later observing, “There’s not even cell phone service here, so that creates a different level of focus and commitment that’s difficult to get from a group of people back home.” Before you’re inspired to unplug, too, search “O’My’s No Swimming” on YouTube.
