“Listening to “I Was Born Swimming” feels like stepping into a warm, cathartic bath. The album contains peaceful, almost-ambient songs as well as heavy, hook-laden rockers — and both moods match perfectly with Williams’ honey-dipped vocals” – Rolling Stone
Ella O’Connor Williams, 23, released her newest album “I Was Born Swimming” on Jan. 31, 2020 under the pseudonym “Squirrel Flower.” Williams came up with the name Squirrel Flower as a child and although she is unsure of its origins, Williams decided to adopted the name as an ode to her childhood.
Born en-caul, the Indie-rock artist named her newest album after her unique birth. En-caul birth occurs when the infant is born inside of the entire amniotic sac. So, Williams was quite literally born swimming.
Her entire album emulates themes of nostalgia and reflection of her past.
