Across a table of machines and pedals, incorporating abused guitar and liberal vocal manipulation, Giant Swan create a cross-breed of hypnotic bass, industrial percussion and disorientating energy delivered with telepathic intricacy.
Giant Swan is the brainchild of Robin Stewart & Harry Wright; an acerbic marriage of energised, aggressive dance music, quaking bass and hypnotic electronic noise.
'The duo display a fearsome mastery of techno dynamics, but it's their detachment from that world that makes their music so compelling.' — RESIDENT ADVISOR
'Giant Swan seem free of pretension. They’re two punk kids who cracked the rave code by accident, and they’re having a fine time' — WIRE
Steadily assembling an arsenal of heavy hitting EPs on Howling Owl (2015), FuckPunk (2016), Timedance (2017), Mannequin (2018) and most recently Whities (2018), their recorded output has been sculpted and refined into consummate snapshots of the unrivalled, ecstatic energy they fire from the stage through raw improvisation. The relentless touring of underground DIY circuits, as well as festival stealing performances at the likes of Unsound and Atonal has seen their reputation take flight as the unstoppable force in live electronic music. Their self titled LP was released on their own imprint, KECK, in November 2019 to mass critical acclaim.
'A brutal, intoxicating listen. It takes me back to the teenage bedrooms of old friends. Rave tapes or MBV on the stereo. Loud. A dense fog of weed smoke. A carpet of strewn detritus. Journeys into special places' — THE QUIETUS
