Halifax-based Gypsophilia is a group of seven performers playing original high-energy jazz which is by turns angular, sweet, nostalgic, modern and raucous. In recent years Gypsophilia has become a formidable touring outfit, regularly crisscrossing the continent and playing to sold-out crowds all over Canada and the US. Their killer live shows and danceable, genre-bending sound have made them an audience favourite at major festivals and small clubs alike. With a combination of serious musicianship, humour and showmanship they are capable of enchanting a sit-down crowd one moment, and whipping people into a dancing, clapping, singing frenzy the next.

Night Swimming is the fourth full-length album from Halifax's Gypsophilia. Recorded at Joel Plaskett’s New Scotland Yard Studio in Dartmouth, NS and produced by Toronto-based Joshua Van Tassel (David Myles, Great Lake Swimmers, Amelia Curran), the album is a departure from the purely live approach of their previous discs. The result is a hauntingly beautiful 9-song masterpiece that showcases a darker, cinematic side of Gypsophilia alongside their signature ebullient swinging sound.
