Giant Swan

With a recently announced UK tour coming later this year, Giant Swan - a noise-rock project conceived by Robin Stewart and Harry Wright that grew out of their roles as guitarists in The Naturals - release their long-awaited and much-anticipated self-titled debut album. Early indications are that it will successfully translate their live energy onto record, and could be one of the finest British underground releases of 2019.

High Waisted

Mannequin Records (Alessandro Adriani, Doris Norton) have an offshoot called Death Of The Machines which they use to debut experimental club fare. They’ve struck gold with High Waisted, a four-track EP by Bristolian group Giant Swan. The duo have previously released on labels including FuckPunk and Timedance, and the tunes here operate in the space between the sounds of those imprints. That is to say, think Total Leatherette going b2b with Blawan.

Whities 016

Giant Swan are the gosh darn dopeness. Anyone who’s caught an earful of the Bristol duo’s recent drops on Timedance, FuckPunk or Mannequin can attest to the visceral majesty of their anarcho-techno sound. It was probably only a matter of time before they ended up on the fine Whities (Lanark Artefax, Minor Science), but it’s still a good thing that they’ve done so. The three tunes on Whities 016 are dance music for the end of the world.

Celebrate The Last 30 Years Of Human Ego / IFTLOYL

Young Echo associates Giant Swan have always walked the line between chunky experimental dance workouts and harsh abstract fuzz, and this new 12” marries the two deliciously. Celebrate The Last 30 Years Of Human Ego is a good time blast, whereas IFTLOYL has a darker throb to it. Delicious stuff on Timedance.
