We recently had the absolute privilege to check out Swansea (U.K.) based indie-grunge four piece Swan Hill and their amazingly epic new single “Unlucky” and to say we’re impressed is a massive understatement.
Swan Hill has a familiar 90’s vibe that reminds us of The Smashing Pumpkins, Spacehog and Collective Soul
Unlucky’, is all about being in either the right place at the wrong time or vice versa. Inspired by tales of woe such as Roy Cleveland Sullivan, a man who got struck by lightning 7 times, or iconic Simpsons character Frank Grimes, a hard worker perpetually overlooked by his archenemy and bumbling fool, Homer. It’s a tale as old as time that all people can relate to – a life comprised of moments just not quite aligning, whether you missed the bus, didn’t get that promotion, or even got struck by lightning (although probably not 7 times).
Musically Swan Hill are absolutely brilliant . The band are both a tight knit and highly skilled group that are supremely talented. (In other words these guys freaking rock)
“Unlucky” is a lyrically solid composition that stuck with us long after the last note .
Swan Hill are Chris (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Guitar), Rory (Drums/Vocals) and Owain (Bass)
Lead vocalist and guitarist Chris has this to say about “Unlucky” – “Unlucky”is a song loosely about the concept of accepting the misfortunes of everyday life and even finding comfort in them. The guitar parts just formed one evening whilst playing around with some fuzzy chords after a few pints at the local pub. It’s a song we’re proud of as a band and one we’ve all been enjoying playing live”
We absolutely loved “Unlucky” and we cannot wait for music from Swan Hill
