Ultra-artsy Portland band Swansea will launch their May tour tonight at the Horned Hand, 8pm. Their first full length album “Old Blood” is due out June 5th and it sounds like it’s going to be pretty darn great.
With heavily lyrical songs that build into a dramatic clash of keys, drums and vocals the three-piece will effortlessly give you goose bumps. You can preview two tracks from their upcoming album here.
Their slow melodic tunes should be a refreshing change form the gypsy-punk and bluegrass that dominate live music in Bend. Plus, it’s free.
