The Swamp is what Inner Wave calls their recording studio, inspired by how hot suburban Los Angeles summers get. A converted garage in Inglewood, it’s heaven for any kid with rock star dreams—the reddish walls are lined with band posters (including their own), a disco ball chills in the corner, a desktop houses a basic recording set-up, instruments are organized around the room, and the only seating areas are equipment cases. Here, at lead singer Pablo Sotelo’s parents' house, is where they’ve been making music for over 10 years.
