Giant Swan announce debut album

"It’s like a mucky brain, with everything passing through it and being rendered as our music. "

The Bristolian duo of Robin Stewart and Harry Wright will release their first album on the 8th of November later thus year, the pair have become renowned for their lively take on techno which blurs the lines between rough, rugged punk and electronics. Drawing upon an eclectic array of experimental influences the pair meander between drone inspired soundscapes, fast paced industrial percussion and driving screamo indspired noise. 

The pair have also announced a tour which will include upcoming dates in the US, Europe and UK. The album is self titled and is described as follows:

“To me Giant Swan means lots of feelings and lots of fun. It’s like a mucky brain, with everything passing through it and being rendered as our music. It’s a vehicle for us to spread our want for a more open-minded and inclusive dance experience, fuelled by a conscious mantra with tongue firmly in cheek”, proclaims Robin, whilst Harry adds, “Giant Swan is just the name of a never-ending story. A statement that changes with each recipient, centred around tolerance, inclusion, self-sufficiency and TRUST. Oh and also weed and beats. It’s about getting stoned and losing ourselves to each other’s consciousness. This record is a conversation between aesthetics. A dialogue where a question is answered with another question until everyone in the room is left scratching their heads, or moving their feet.”
