Remote

A 11 track broken beat album (40m 57s) — released February 23rd 2015 on Freshly Squeezed

The Swingrowers (pronounced Swing Growers) release their second, full-length, album 'Remote' on 9th February 2015. It will be available on CD and limited edition vinyl and is available digitally from December 2014.

"Remote" is a revelation. A complete and fully-realised Electro Swing album that seamlessly blends 20's and 30's influences with polished contemporary production; Superb musicianship with great song-writing; a unique modern sound with classically gorgeous, jazz-inflected vocals.

This is the sound of a band (and indeed an up-start young genre) maturing rapidly. [Juno Download]

What marks this out is the departure from any use of vintage samples. Instead, every track, every sound is entirely original - the influences have been fully absorbed. If there was ever any doubt that this genre had a future, then this is the rebuttal. "Remote" is nothing less than a game-changer.

The album was written collaboratively by the new 5-piece Swingrowers. Now incorporating new members on Violin, Clarinet/Sax with the previous Manouche (Gypsy) Guitar, Drums/Keys/Production and Vocals, the album also features a collaboration with London rappers Too Many T's on the story of the sibling rivalry between Django Reinhardt and his brother (Track 6 - 'Django') and is the latest in an increasingly impressive line of releases on Brighton Independent label, Freshly Squeezed.
