Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Swine. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I really liked their rough sound.
I immediately liked the cadence of this band’s music.
A raw original rock style in the typical English style.
Music that in some passages reminded me of the irreverent English bands of the 70s and 80s.
Aggressively beautiful the acid sound of the guitars and also the timbre of the voice that immediately distinguishes the sound of this band.
I also appreciated the mix, just right for this genre where you don’t look for everything to be clean and precise but where even something out of place is part of the game.
A band with clear ideas on how to propose themselves to the masses and does so with innovative original songs that do not fail to look at the great past of English music.
A band that I absolutely recommend because there is a need for this real music played with real instruments and not always with those obnoxious beats.
No Fightin’ is Swine’s Single Out Now!
Direct and effective pure music!
SWINE formed in 2017, in Swinton, Salford. Not shortly after, the band released their debut single – The Riff – followed by their debut EP named ‘Fools Britannia’. The EP, all professionally recorded in the hometown of Swinton catches the rough and early sound of the band, like setting the foundation for what was to come. In 2019, the band released ‘They Hate Us’ accompanied by B-side ‘Diluted’ both tracks highlighting current world issues such as classism, fascism and sexism whilst adding in sections to the songs influenced by Ska and Modern Rock.
Later on in the year, ‘Gazza B’ was released, a song open to interpretation. The band emits an undertone of punk rock noise throughout every song they perform, mixed and merged into a mesh of different genres. Anybody who has seen this band live will tell you of their chaotic and energetic stage performance.
