In full disclosure.....I was a synchronized swimmer for most of my life, and yes I have shellacked my hair with gelatin on more than one occasion. Buzzfeed did a hilarious expose on the terrifying faces of synchronized swimmers after the last Olympics, which to be perfectly honest, was a pretty accurate representation of the sport. I mean, while incredibly athletically challenging and graceful, sometimes synchro swimmers make faces only a mother could love.....
Synchro is a strange, yet mesmerizing sport that has taught me more about life than any classroom ever could, so whenever I see it represented in pop culture- on TV, on movies, or in music- I relish it. Below is a video by Lightning Dust of their bittersweet love song Diamond that has some pretty hilarious synchro in it towards the end. Lightning Dust is an electro-tinged alt-pop group from Vancouver who are about to release their third full album and have embarked on an ambitious cross country tour- including a stop in Calgary on July 24th at the Palomino! So take a listen and check out some more of their beautiful synth heavy music here.
