Swerve

Swerve reflects on a tumultuous year in new single "My Enemy Is Dead"

Los Angeles’ Swerve is pensive yet hopeful in its new track, “My Enemy Is Dead,” which begins softly, with clean electric guitar chords strummed as lightly as the vocals that reflect on a tumultuous year, or era even. As the song progresses and fuzz becomes the ambiance of a track where a warm bass and vibrant drum rhythm become highlights, we realize that music can still help us uncage feelings of sadness, victory, and relief. In its anthemic feel, “My Enemy Is Dead” channels a desire to let go of the trauma, moving forward, well prepared. Stream the new track below, and get lost in the song’s jolting guitar solo. - René Cobar

   

Swerve play tonight at Harvard & Stone

"I'm gonna take you far from here", vocalist Gregory Mahdesian sings with confidence on "Remedy", a track that perfectly exemplifies Swerve's impartial affection for thick, grungy riffs and jangly Brit rock. In their world, it's as if there's no seperation between the two, where even if both sounds were stylistically different they both shared a passion for gut-level immediacy. 

Swerve will be playing songs from their debut EP tonight at Harvard & Stone, where they also promise to preview an upcoming single. Is there a full-length announcement coming soon? You'll have to make it there to find out.
