Something about Giant Swan’s first EP release of 2015 is highly evocative of an underground rave in a sewer. The bleak, dirty beats feel like they’ve been thrown into an echo chamber and left to fester and grow to become their own charged, atmospheric melodies.
The EP handles itself in emotional segments rather than songs, moving from dark reverence, to tension, to slowly building anger with precision and accuracy. It’s a musical chameleon, a mesmerising mish-mash of textures, builds and drops that allow each track to slowly morph into a different version of itself.
Giant Swan are the kings of cacophony, the dukes of drones and their EP leaves you hungry with a taste for what’s to come.
