Back after a two-year break-up, Swearin’ are releasing their first album in 5 years. Somewhere halfway between Wavves and Alvvays (but without v’s, for some reason) you’ll find Fall into the Sun. Come and get your fix of girl-fronted, clever and noisy indie-rock. Comes with a tiny hint of tasty self-deprication.

I tried to review this yesterday but I got so annoyed by the first track that I went off to have my dinner. Today, realising that I'm going to have to review it I have a cunning ploy... I'm starting at track 2.
And now I can see why our description writer has compared this three piece to the twin 'v' bands of Wavves and Alvvays. There's no 'v's in Swearin but they still produce neat and surfy American lo-fi with buzzsaw guitars and a simple three person dynamic. Ok I see what it is, it's the female part of the vocal pair I'm struggling with. I enjoyed 'Dogpile' which sounded like a miniature Weezer but on opener 'Big Change' and 'Grow Into A Ghost' I'm not getting on with the speak singing of Allison Crutchfield. Ah.... I have history with Allison Crutchfield - I struggled with her voice on her otherwise good solo album Tourist in This Town. It has a bit of a southern twang to it and I can't help thinking of Sheryl Crow.
Getting further into the album I'm struggling with the guy voice so at least that evens it up a bit. I just find what they do the sort of over simplistic 90s indie rock that should have been put to bed when the Rentals split up. It does utterly nothing for me and I can't wait to stop it playing.
