This marks the singer-songwriter’s second release within the last six months and follows her acclaimed “Survive My Own Mind” EP in late 2022.
On “I Can’t Swim” Ashley mixes lust and regret into a potent, poignant brew. From the top, her crystal-clear voice cuts through a driving guitar riff. “Why’d you show up here?” she seethes, “You were uninvited.” But soon her tune changes. A moody piano ups the drama and she melts into a kiss. “I just can’t escape from my favorite mistake”, she admits.
“I Can’t Swim” follows the soaring “Everyone And No One”, an equally bittersweet breakdown of love and doubt. Both tracks come after Kutcher’s whirlwind 2022, a year highlighted by her EP, which featured the stripped-down “Love You More” — a fan-favorite with more than 11 million streams on Spotify alone. The EP also contained the acoustic TikTok sensation “Nothing’s All The Time” as well as the infectious “Emotionless”.
Kutcher recently wrapped up her first-ever headlining tour of the US earlier this year, which saw seven out of her ten shows sold-out, including her stops in Los Angeles and New York City. With “I Can’t Swim,” she continues to flex her songwriting prowess, hinting at more good things to come…
