This Band called Swans, just discovered them and loving them…

I keep hearing this song around the house being played on an Ipod stereo system so I asked this person who does this song and he said, “Swans”. So I looked the band up and found the band in youtube and started to listen to their stuff.

I was like blown away… this is probably the most intense music I’ve ever heard in a long time. I’ve listened to so much music over the years but never heard anything like Swans did. Swans is an experimental rock band. They’re kind of prog rocky a little bit, psychedellic kind of stuff like Pink Floyd maybe but Swans is different. Michael Gira has a unique sound. I love his style.

I’m gonna start getting albums by Swans, I think and “Soundtracks for the Blind” is a good one to start off with. That’s how most Swans fans get into them is starting with that album ’cause their song “The Sound” is like an anthem for them. The lyrics could be very deep and intense… some of this stuff may not be easy for people to listen to.

I was kind of hooked to this song so I had to find out who did it and turns out to be a band called Swans. They’re kind of a new band but not really, they’ve been around a while. They’ve been around since the 80’s. They sound new but they’re not really.

Cool band and I want to get into them this year. Michael Gira’s songwriting style kind of reminds me of myself. His vocals are kind of like mine in a way. Glad I discovered him and his band Swans. Never heard of them until now.
