Swear Tapes

Mississippi might be known for being the first home of the blues, but garage pop rascals Swear Tapes prove how much can change in 70 years. Their raw, straightforward, vigorous style, gushes lackadaisical adolescence and undeniable songwriting chops. A simple guitar jangle and solid rock beat form the backbone of these songs, but listeners can expect quirky synth leads and background vocal chimes to enter the picture. Speaking of vocals, these guys know their way around a vocal harmony. Although grounded in boisterous youth, these well-constructed numbers exude heartfelt emotion and tuneful heart-throb.
