The Swayback

The Swayback



Merging the dark, spacious atmosphere of Joy Division with psychedelic fuzz and Detroit-derived noise, Denver's Swayback find an uncommon middle ground between moody post-punk and anarchic proto-punk. Dark as anything to come out of Manchester's suicidal singers minds, yet powerful enough to hold its own in a biker bar, The Swayback forges a much needed and incredibly unlikely bridge between London's Bat Cave era and Detroit Rock City.
