Swimming With Dolphins is an American electronica band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Austin Tofte and Owl City frontman Adam Young formed the band in 2008, later featuring vocals from Breanne Düren. The name of the band was derived, according to Tofte, from "some old Jacques Cousteau documentaries from the 80s". Though Young was never the front man or lead singer, he performed synths and programming for the act. He also served as the producer of the group.
For the act, Tofte and Young created trademark outfits. Tofte took on the appearance of a submariner wearing a classic scuba suit and Young donned a pilot's mask (which would later become Sky Sailing's trademark look).
