Live4ever’s New Tunes Guide: Chappo, Swoons and more

They’ve now got their second album ‘Future Former Self’ ready to release through Votiv Music on May 12th.

Swoons are a trio from Buckinghamshire whose debut single ‘The Night’ is to be be released on March 30th. It’s had airplay from BBC 3 Counties and Amazing Radio. Catch them live in London when they play the Barfly on April 24th.

It’s all about the sound really.

The skitter of a drum machine, the romance of the 808 kicking “Manchester” into life, the howling feedback that links The Who to Jesus And the Mary Chain…to Napalm Death, the jangle that stretches from the Beatles to Arctic Monkeys, the soul groove that pulls back from Alex Turner’s Sheffield lads to Marvin Gaye and rebounds to Robin Thicke.

What you need is something that can handle all of those sounds. Something that will cope with whatever mood you’re in. Something that will be true to what you need to hear.

ei8htball. It’s all in your head.
